ISPM Conference
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.

Mission of ISPM

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
North and South in order to promote a more equal distribution of knowledge
and resources across fields, including marine and environmental planning,
urban and rural planning, public policy, counter mapping, and indigenous
rights.

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.

About ISPM

We are an eager group of collaborators including graduate students, faculty
members, volunteers, and practitioners. The formation of a participatory
mapping international organization is well-timed with the proliferation of
mapping technologies, crowdsourcing platforms and social justice issues
emerging in every corner of the world.

Participatory Mapping is the field of research and practice engaged in
leveraging geographic technology to support public participation.
Applications for participatory mapping methods range from indigenous
rights, to smart cities, to biodiversity conservation. Our organization is
unique in that we embrace the interdisciplinarity of the challenges faced
at all levels of community and governance.

The International Society for Participatory Mapping (ISPM) was
conceptualized at the first International Participatory Mapping Conference
at Cal Poly in July 2017. Since then, we've formed a small group of
academics, practitioners, and activists who believe in the ideals of
participatory mapping and its potential for promoting equality and social
justice.
