Survey on the Use of P2 Geographic Information Systems

Katie Howard sent us this announcement for the blog. Apparently there is an emerging field of study known as PPGIS (Public Participation Geographic Information Systems), and if you happen to work with GIS or engage in community mapping and data collection processes, you are invited by some folks at Hunter College’s Department of Urban Affairs and Planning to complete an online survey. Actually, I just did a search and it appears we have 6 resources on PPGIS in the NCDD Learning Exchange, so click here if you want more information on PPGIS. Click “more” for the full announcement.

Dear Colleagues:

We have created a short e-survey designed to understand the use and effectiveness of Geographic Information Systems that support public participation, an emerging field of study known as PPGIS (Public Participation Geographic Information Systems). This e-survey is part of research conducted by faculty and students at Hunter College of the City University of New York (Hunter).

Our research seeks to examine how PPGIS is applied in a variety of contexts to support and facilitate public participation. One of our main goals in this research is to understand who employs this technology and the degree to which it fosters citizen involvement in public processes and deliberations.

Members of the community development and community organizing fields, especially those who work with GIS or engage in community mapping and data collection processes, may find this survey relevant, as your responses can help us understand the benefits and limits of PPGIS technology. It can be completed anonymously, and should take about 10 minutes to complete. We are hosting the survey through SurveyMonkey.com, a well-known online data collection service. Of course, your participation is completely voluntary.

The link to this survey is www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=x_2ftvh8ONxhKD581EAJFyHA_3d_3d.

Kindly forward this message to your colleagues as appropriate.

We thank you, in advance for your time.

Best regards,
