dc.description.abstractThis research seeks to use Unoccupied Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drones to address challenges in communicating relationships to ecosystem services for farmers and Aniishnaabe, specifically regarding managing conflicts and making decisions around land management. Drones and a range of communication tools related to Unoccupied Aerial Systems (UAS) will be a central technology of focus in exploring how to merge processes, technology and skills from across multiple knowledge systems to create the framework for a process called the ‘D3 Process’ used to address the communication needs of land stewards regarding ecosystem services. This research is built from the examples of two use-cases based in northern Ontario, Canada: agro-ecosytems of the Black River Farmers’ Co-op, and land and forest stewardship of the Matachewan First Nation. The research methodology is directed by the needs and values of land stewards themselves, taking a user-defined approach that is seldom represented directly in drone literature.en_US
