The project wraps around many different perspectives:
- from the families of those men of the NZETC who worked in the tunnels
- for the armed forces
- the City of Arras
- from personal interest to cross-cultural experiences to research opportunities
This project unites surveying students from the National School of Surveying (Dunedin, New Zealand) with their peers from the École Supérieure des Géomètres et Topographes (ESGT, Le Mans, France), who, with supervision from staff and academics from each institution undertake a joint mapping survey to record this site of shared heritage.
