The Society’s objectives are to encourage and support the development,
experimentation, evaluation, and application of participatory mapping
methods globally in order to foster interaction and research in this
scientific field, and to coordinate with other organizations in the study
of participatory processes, mapping, and quantitative analyses. The Society
places a strong emphasis on fostering opportunities between the Global

and resources across fields, including marine and environmental planning,
urban and rural planning, public policy, counter mapping, and indigenous

These purposes are to be carried out by:

   - Facilitating global communications,
   - Providing academic assistance with ideas, methods, and contacts,
   - Sponsoring international conferences for the exchange of ideas and
   dissemination of results,
   - Encouraging special purpose workshops and student knowledge exchanges,
   - Publishing the electronic newsletter, and
   - Encouraging an environment of international colleagueship and
   friendship across the globe.
