The mission of the International Society on Participatory Mapping (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.

The Official Bylaws http://landscapevalues.org/ispm/ispm-bylaws-2/ outline
the organizational structure of the Society.

We ask that you become an official member to help support our mission to
provide educational opportunities to those in economic need.

Sincerely,

The Executive Committee
International Society of Participatory Mapping

Our Committee comprises of specialized professionals and academics in the
field of participatory mapping and geospatial planning. To see a complete
