PGIS ethics

Ethics and sound attitudes and behaviours are emphasized as cross-cutting imperatives.

Each profession and culture carries moral parameters and codes of ethics. As PGIS is understood as a multidisciplinary practice it is meant to respond to a blend of different moral rules. Practical ethics for PGIS practitioners, facilitators, technology intermediaries and researchers is intended to provide non-exhaustive guidelines for making appropriate ethical choices for those practicing or wanting to practice PGIS.

This 25-min educational video documentary introduces the practice of participatory spatial information management and communication (PGIS) in the development context. It has been designed to introduce development practitioners (technology intermediaries) to the practice of demand-driven PGIS.

In this video, PGIS practice is presented as a continuum starting from community mobilisation to project planning and design, choice of mapping methods and technologies, visualisation of different technologies in diverse ethno-cultural and agro-ecological environments, and finally putting the maps to work in the domains of identity building, self-determination, spatial planning and advocacy.

Practical Ethics in PGIS/PPGIS practice

The guidelines are not meant to be exhaustive, as each culture and situation may have its own moral imperatives. It is the obligation of the individuals to make their best judgment to ensure good practice.
