Thursday, May 27, 2010 Open Forum on Participatory Geographic Information Systems and Technologies serves as a global avenue for discussing issues, sharing experiences and good practices related to community mapping, public participation GIS (PPGIS), participatory GIS (PGIS) and other geographic information technologies used to support integrated conservation and development, sustainable natural resource management and customary property rights in developing countries and among indigenous people worldwide. 
Members of the network are able to share information and lessons learned, post questions and announcements and upload and download resource documents which are relevant to the practice. 
The site is an online gateway for accessing discussion lists in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, all dealing with participatory mapping.
