  • On the importance of including metadata when dealing with Traditional Ecological Knowledge
  • Meistara
  • Not only in respect to the marine realm, but for a broad catalog of research and management purposes, use of Traditional Ecological
    Knowledge (TEK) and its hybridization with scientific knowledge has increased in popularity. Scientists thereby mostly use geospatial
    tools, and Geographic Information System (GIS) in particular, to join hard data with applied knowledge. However, a rather
    problematic aspect when utilizing TEK is the existing deficit in systematic, and rigid methodologies for TEK collection, and a
    general lack in analyzing methods which hinder TEK to become as powerful as conventional scientific knowledge. By critically
    assessing the Community Based Coastal Resource Mapping Project (CBCRMP) conducted in the Bay of Fundy in the mid 1990s,
    this study presents a document of metadata descriptors which support the systematic documentation of TEK and hence facilitate its
    use in GIS, as well as its fusion with other knowledge systems. By analyzing the methodology applied to gather TEK of resources
    for the entire Bay (e.g. information on ground fisheries, lobster fisheries, etc.) and identifying gaps in the data documentation and
    reporting procedure in retrospect, we deduce essential features to document when gathering TEK.
