Built heritage/Cultural Mapping is the mapping of the cultural values of
an area’s physical features. It enables an area’s physical features to be related to their (changing) uses over time, providing a longitudinal understanding of their importance.
This corresponding cultural mapping tool kit was developed in conjunction with the cultural mapping training in order to help communities better understand places of heritage value. The aim of the cultural mapping toolkit is to provide a practical guide for secondary school teachers to teach cultural mapping as part of their curriculum so that students can identify, understand, record and map the cultural significance of places of heritage value.
