Abstract: Participatory mapping is one of multiple disciplines of geomatics. This started in the 1980s in order to help local populations of the southern hemisphere to develop their territory. It is in New Caledonia, in the tribe of Wan Pwec that we will consider the relevance of participatory mapping. It is important to note that, participatory mapping is not used to develop their own territory, but rather to explain and demonstrate the traditional land management logics that exist amongst the kanak tribes. The traditional logics are knowledge-based passed on orally from one generation to the next. On the customary lands of the tribe of Wan Pwec, we will see how the « chefs de familles » and the « chef de clan » administer and manage family lands. This Master Thesis is related to the kanak society characterized by a strong oral tradition and without any paper base to conserve and archive its knowledge. Using geomatics sciences, a case study and other disciplines (such as anthropology, law, history, geography…), this Master Thesis proposes the results of its research on traditional knowledge of customary land.
