From the late 1670's comes a great "strip" map by John Ogilby. Here, to get from Presteigne to Carmathen, in Wales it's a practical method to keep one on the correct route to a destination, reference landmarks & stay on the route.

3/3 The bottom of the alley is given over to a smaller hut, the youngest child's hut, which can also be used as a guest hut. Not every hamlet has a central alley, but it seems that the large hut is always built on an elevated site.

2/3 The big hut, the case of the eldest, the chief, is placed at the top of the central alley, preferably on a mound, becoming the receptacle of the political (and symbolic) game. In different Kanak countries, the large hut is laid out in different ways - in Paici country, it consists of a sacred grove (located behind the hut), the enclosure of the large hut, and the top of the alley.

1/3 Two fundamental ideas define the layout of Kanak villages: the big hut and the central alley (or clear space). The backbone of the hamlet, the central alley is also the metaphor for the political place par excellence, being the place where the parole arrives, is exchanged and unfolds. It is the place par excellence for the deployment of coutume The rest of the buildings are built around this symbolic space, sometimes in parallel sub-alleys

My opinion about Mapcomplete after 1,2k edits most with pictures.

After a few sporadic edits i realised that Mapcomplete offers a new dimension of mapping. I feel like the beginning of OSM. Almost at every corner its possible to upload pictures=information. No pictures need to be boring. Neither the clock on the building, nor the bench with a view or bicycle parking with oldtown in background. Additionally add some details.

Second post dedicated to the maps I made during my time at Rex Nouma ! This sensorial map represents the perception and uses of the center by its members. The qualitative data used are the result of the experiences, observations, discussions and testimonials I gathered during my spatial practice of place. The name of the map is the result of a discussion with dancer-performer Pascal Teouri, who told me that I was trying to show the Rex Energy.
