Abstract

The article focuses on participatory mapping and the integration of this method and social process with Geographic Information Systems. The reflection addresses the complexity, diversity and narrative of places voiced and depicted by local inhabitants on maps or models, and the need of encoding and optimizing data and information so generated thereby the use of digital tools. The aim is to put local, scientific and technical expertise into dialogue within a process of knowledge co-production and concerted decision-making for more effective territorial planning and natural resource management.
