  3. 3. Why?Local communities are the most reliable,important knowledge-holders (and stakeholders)for development and political engagement.Participatory and open technologiesand citizen media can help citizens amplify voicesand increase influence and participation inprocesses of development.
  4. 4. What is Community Mapping?1) Community creates/gathers the map data. That is, geographical coordinates alongside any other information.2) Community also edits the map data themselves, and comes to agreement on the final product.3) Mapped information is generally shared openly, online, contributing to commons.4) Community uses the map afterwards, themselves. Can be part of a larger participatory development, local planning, or advocacy process, as well as a base for citizen reporting.
