Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) has been gaining large strides over the past few years in the GIS sector. VGI is becoming more then just geotagged photographs on Flickr and mashups of Google Earth and Google Maps. It has become part of many successful organizations’’ strategies for sharing data, engaging potential collaborators, and gathering public input.
This presentation will explore three project overviews of how VGI practices have provided the foundation for engaging the public to become better partners: from data sharing through the City of Seattle Open Data initiatives, collaboration for project prioritization with the Office of Species Conservation, to gathering historical property information for the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
