In this Master Class we will present new tools designed to support bottom-up land tenure, land rights, and land resource mapping using hand drawn maps. These tools which form part of a system called Smart Sketch Maps, SmartSkeMa (pronounced smärt skē-mə) in short, facilitate automatic and semi-automatic interpretation of free-hand sketches. SmartSkeMa is part of a suite of tools for land tenure recording being developed in the EU funded project its4land. By the end of the Master Class participants will have an appreciation for how SmartSkeMa can improve their current community mapping workflows or help them explore community mapping as a possible approach in their work.
