Striking a Balance

This research examined whether co-owners of multiply owned land would be prepared to trade reduced access to productive portions of Maori Freehold Land, for increased access to culturally treasured portions, and to manage the latter using a model that seeks to optimise cultural values rather than profit. In answering this question, the research describes a cartographic technique aimed at facilitating conceptualisation, and responses to this technique by land owners.
