DVAG conference on Public Participation GIS (PPGIS) - 8 June 2018 at EIFER

EIFER is hosting the DVAG (Deutscher Verband für Angewandte Geographie) conference on Public Participation GIS (PPGIS). The event will take place on the 8th of June 2018, starting at 10:00 a.m. at EIFER. PPGIS describes forms of participation using maps to locate and verbalize ideas, needs, wishes or facts and perceptions. Different disciplines use PPGIS, such as geography, urban development and social sciences. PPGIS is also being used in some areas of what is known as "Citizen Science".

The lectures will present potentials, applications and innovations of PPGIS in urban and regional development. During the event, there will be room for discussion. The conference language will be German.
