Abstract
 
Description
This Manual on cultural mapping provides an invaluable resource for everyone interested in having a deeper understanding of the unique character and identity of a historic place and its community. The simple step by step procedures outlining the processes, tools and techniques for collecting and assessing the cultural assets and resources of any community provide the user with a clear methodology to unravel the complex and significant elements which wake up any human settlement. This has been further demonstrated with the illustration from a case study of cultural mapping within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town, Penang. The manual is a remarkable resource which advocates that cultural mapping becomes the basis for all future urban planning studies to ensure that sensitive and appropriate decisions are made in the management and development of historic sites and communities. A must-use for policy makers, planners, cultural advocates and community leaders. -- Ar. Laurence Loh Deputy President, the Heritage of Malaysia Trust (Badan Warisan Malaysia) - from Amzon
