Improving public involvement and field data collection through GIS
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Prashant Singh
Field data is critical for administrative, planning, and community work. A combination of modern mapping technology and existing GIS data catalogs can lead to more straightforward and powerful tools and processes. By increasing accessibility, we improve our ability to involve the public in ways that go beyond crowdsourcing. Through case studies, we discuss GIS base data, technology principles, field metholodies, community involvement practices, and data applications.
