Presentation for community GIS workshops


Published on

Using geographic information systems for community and environmental responsibility. Public Participatory GIS provides a means for 'citizen scientists' to not only supply
information but to participate in the consultation process.

Geographic information technologies are used in participatory settings and to support information gathering.

The value of PPGIS:
* community inclusion and engagement are integrated
* conservation and development
* sustainable natural resource management
* discussion of customary property rights

The presentation shows examples of projects where information has been collected by community groups and how it made a difference.
