    1. 1. The assessment of participatory mapping methods based on the expert system Jiří Pánek Department of Development Studies Palacky University in Olomouc
    2. 2. Overview • Introduction • Why is participation important • Participatory methods used (for mapping and visualization) • Expert system (preliminary survey results) • Conclusion • One more slide
    3. 3. Introduction • Participatory mapping as an independent approach historically comes mainly from Participatory Rural Appraisal (Chambers 2006). • Creating their own community maps has an empowering effect on the participating members of the community (Vlok & Panek 2012).
    4. 4. Why is participation important? • In the Local Agenda 21 (UN Earth Summit) community-based mapping was identified as a best practice for locally-based sustainability planning (IDRC, 1996). • The sense of ownership sparks empowerment and actuates the momentum for sustainable development — driven and run by the community as it comes from within the community (Vlok & Panek 2012).
    5. 5. Participatory methods used in research • 10 methods, mainly from Training Kit on participatory spatial information management and communication developed by EU-ACP Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation

    11. 11. Expert system and survey results • • • • Who are the ―experts‖? Male/Female = 64/36 (167 in total) Average age = 38 Participants structure: – LinkedIn, PPGIS, ResearchGate, Facebook – UNISA, ICC2013, students
    12. 12. Who were the experts? • Dr. Stefano Marras – Map Kibera Project • Dr. Peter Kyem – Central Connecticut State University • Prof. Nancy Obermayer – National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis • Prof. Sarah Elwood – University of Washington • Prof. Jon Corbett – Centre for Social, Spatial and Economic Justice, University of British Columbia
    13. 13. Preliminary survey results
    14. 14. Conclusions • ―Time available and needed for the mapping activity‖, ―Facilitator’s geo-skills and experience‖ and ―Reason of the mapping activity‖ are the most important factors. • On the other hand ―Internet connection available‖, ―Colonial history of the community‖ and ―Electrical equipment (PC, laptop) available‖ are among the least important factors.
    15. 15. Conclusion • The results from the survey will be used in order to create a tool for selecting the most optimal participatory mapping method for specific community settings.
