Participatory Mapping/GIS 2017 will feature state-of-knowledge presentations, training sessions, and working groups across a wide range of thematic categories developed from the interests and expertise of conference participants. Participatory mapping is a “big tent” idea without significant distinction between the terms public participation GIS (PPGIS), participatory GIS (PGIS), and volunteered geographic information (VGI). This conference will showcase applications and technology representing all categories of participatory mapping.
