Identifying and Representing Elements of Local Contexts in Namibia

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceeding

Abstract

In an attempt to represent local context in a 3D visualisa-
tionfor rural elders in Namibia we have foundmajor dierences in thecon-
ceptualizationof this context between external and local partners in the
co-creation process. Through the evaluation of a mobile context capture
tool we found a clear disconnection of community members with both
abstract and absolute representations of points, paths and areas. From
this we discuss how the local concepts of space and time as frames of
reference can not be represented adequately with our current selection
of contextual data, and how we are engaging in participatory activities
to derive a common understanding of contextual representations.
