Abstract

P a r t i c i p a t o r y This page was last updated on: June 09, 2011 is the result of a spontaneous merger of Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) methods with Geographic Information Technologies and Systems (GIT&S) to compose peoples’ spatial knowledge in the forms of virtual or physical, 2 or 3 dimensional maps used as interactive vehicles for discussion, information exchange, analysis and as support in advocacy, decision making and action taking. PGIS practice is usually geared towards community empowerment through measured, demand- driven, user-friendly and integrated applications of GIT&S, where maps become a major conduit in the process.
