Kristina Patterson was proud to work with Council of Haida Nations and the Haida Gwaii Natural Resource District (Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations) to complete the Haida Gwaii Visual Landscape Inventory Update 2017 – 2020.
The team combined landscape architectural and planning expertise as well as practical experience in visual resource management and public engagement to create user friendly communication tools for presentation to the public, execute effective fieldwork techniques, produce detail oriented report writing and intuitive document archiving.
With the unique needs of a tourism destination and the vibrant community of Haida Gwaii in mind, ANKA created a clear program for Visual Landscape Inventory based on requirements outlined in Visual Landscape Inventory Procedures & Standards Manual May, 1997 (and associated errata in Attachment 2 of the Invitation to Tender). The project deliverables were completed in a timely manner, provided through a process that engaged the public, maximized local resources and followed recognized resource management protocols.
Our intention was to create a collaborative process that was clear and straightforward. We met regularly with the Local Ministry of Forests Staff to clarify items as required, prepare presentation materials, engagement materials and guide consultation meetings. ANKA utilized progressive best practices in visual landscape inventory and community engagement.
Final report deliverables included GIS mapping, shape files, final report, photo pan inventory and Visual Landscape Inventory database.
