Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and its related technologies are beginning to have a significant impact on the communities which use them. A number of issues are emerging which are of concern to academics, professionals, and community users of GIS, and these are also seen in the broader GIS and society debates on the relationships between communities, Geographic Information Technology (GIT) and public policy.
Information technology is significantly affecting society, and often to the disadvantage of low income and marginalized communities. Yet there are many instances in the US and around the world where communities have used this technology advantageously. A good deal of this book reflects on public participation in GIS concepts, best practices and constraints and opportunities - and in addition it presents detailed case studies and provides models that can be replicated by other communities. There is a focus on the conceptual and practical issues arising from the intersection of GIS with participant communities.
