Public Participation Geographic Information System

Public Participation Geographic Information System (PPGIS) is one of the most popular digital methods for public engagement, widely used for place-based human-environment research and large-scale public participation. It is a map-based survey method enabling participants to provide both geographic and non-geographic information. This approach bridges “soft” subjective, place-based data (like human experiences and everyday behavior) with “hard” objective GIS data.

In BioProtect, a PPGIS methodology for ecosystem-based conservation measures developed
in Norway will be adapted in accordance with the specific needs of each DS.
