Abstract

This chapter examines participatory approaches to GIS (PPGIS) in community planning. The discussion examines current and emerging trends in PPGIS practices, issues of access and participation that have shaped PPGIS development in the past decade, and new developments in technologies and participatory planning processes that will shape its future trajectory. The chapter concludes by suggesting practical strategies for addressing some of the challenges of facilitating and sustaining PPGIS in community planning, and identifying key areas of current GIScience research that may inform and enhance PPGIS in the future.
