Help Support Mappers in Need!
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. We will be
providing travel and technology grants on a rolling basis to those in need
from underrepresented communities.
We are able to support true and equal use of GIS technologies through
membership dues. 100% of funds raised through dues goes to participatory
mappers in need. Please consider how far your membership can go in
supporting participatory mappers from all over the world!

Let the people map!
*Aalto University, Espoo, Finland | 17-19 June 2019*
Organized for the second time, the International Society of Participatory
Mapping (ISPM) conference brings together scholars, planners and
practitioners working with participatory mapping and spatial participatory
methods. Hosted by Aalto University in Finland, the 2019 conference
provides a platform for presenting recent advances within the field of
participatory mapping and initiating discussion on the current state and
future directions of the research.
Rapidly increasing applications of participatory mapping methods within and
beyond academia challenge the community to enhance transdisciplinary
collaboration and to advance the circulation of good practice. With the
theme "Let the people map", the ISPM 2019 conference invites us to approach
these questions with a special focus on novel ways of facilitating dialog
between participatory mapping researchers and practitioners.

database that provides contributors, policy-makers, and the public with a
comprehensive overview of the field.*
*Participatory Mapping Crowdsourced Project*
Our PMC Project can connect your work with other participatory mappers from
across the globe. We use the content you submit to keep our members up to
