The Power of Maps: bringing the third dimension to the negotiation table

Publication year: 

Participatory geographic information systems (PGIS) combine a range of feo-spatial information management tools and methods such as sketch maps, participatory 3D models (P3DM) aerial photographs, satellite images, global positioning systems (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS).  CTA has been in the forefront of activities to promote PGIS across African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.

Impact assessments undertaken in six ACP regions have documented how empowering PGIS can be for rural and at times marginalised communities.  This publication documents some of the success stories that have emerged as a result of CTA’s initiatives in PGIS in recent years.
