Focus on Micronesia: Mapping the Future - Melekeok

Ocean-related events such as tidal waves endanger the lives of people in the coastal areas of Melekeok and resulting in a high level of inland migration. Recently, the Melekeok community engaged in a 3D mapping project to help them visualize resources, infrastructure, natural habitats and community landmarks from a geospatial perspective. Over 70 participants of all ages assisted constructing the 3D map.
