1 Mondays, 4:00-5:20 p.m. Wilkinson credits Geo 599 Virtual Seminar in Geographic Information Science: Public Participation GIS

2 ~70 institutions, govt., industry

3 UCGIS - University Consortium for Geographic Information Science –research the issues that emerge from the use of the technology - in areas such as scale, accuracy, representation, SOCIETY –evaluate, reflect on, work to improve the technology –work to improve GIS practice

4 UCGIS Education Priorities DISTANCE EDUCATION –1996 Virtual Seminar (UCSB) –1998 Virtual Seminar (OSU) –2002 Virtual Seminar (Hunter College - CUNY) –2005 Virtual Seminar (Penn State) GIS&T Body of Knowledge (aka “Model Curriculum”) Emerging Technologies Accreditation and Certification Supporting Infrastructure Access and Equity Professional Education Alternative Curricular Design Graduate GIS Education Learning with GIS

5 A Virtual Seminar? PRESENTERS U. of Leeds (UK) U. of Sheffield (UK) U. of Manchester (UK) San Diego State U. of Washington U. of Wisconsin- Milwaukee STUDENTS Oregon State Penn State U. of Leeds (UK) Southampton U. (UK) U. of York (UK) U. of Utrecht (Netherlands)

6 Components / Expectations Online presentations –Marratech (“synchronous”) Online discussion –Listserv or Blackboard (“asynchronous”) Face-to-face every Monday –Discussion leaders Your own readings Group project at end

8 Geographic Information Science (GISci) Integrates and advances technology from… geographic information systems (GIS) automated mapping, web mapping remote sensing global positioning systems distributed computing (cyberinfrastructure) mobile computing

9 New high-res satellite imagery will enable us to measure, in even greater detail, physical phenomena that change continuously over time and large areas. Remote Sensing Image courtesy of Rutgers U UCGIS Congressional Breakfast

10 Mobile and field computing impacts both how we collect geospatial data…and how we use data in the field... Image courtesy of Rutgers U UCGIS Congressional Breakfast

11 Robotic vehicles for data collection in the field - on land... Image courtesy of Rutgers U UCGIS Congressional Breakfast

12 … and at sea on the order of tens of meters to meters features the size of a beer can!

14 Map Servers - “Web GIS”

15 Urban planners use 3-D analysis to evaluate urban land use... Image courtesy of Rutgers U UCGIS Congressional Breakfast

16 and to recommend continuous green space strategies... Image courtesy of Rutgers U UCGIS Congressional Breakfast

17 GIScience (2) The science behind the systems Fundamental issues arising from the use of the systems The science that is done with the technology Systematic study of geographic information using scientific methods Societal issues of GIS use

18 So what is PPGIS? Public Participation GIS Community interests and GIS technology “Empowering” communities Collaborative decision-making involving the public “Conflicting knowledge” and “multiple realities” “Public participation” vs. “participatory”

19 Syllabus, Assignments

20 Group Project: Choose a Place, an Issue, and 3 of the following: 1.Propose a strategy for soliciting “local knowledge” about a given land management issue. 2.Describe the problem of distilling the spatial aspect of local knowledge. 3.Explain how, and how well, local knowledge may be represented in a GIS. 4.Exemplify a case in which local knowledge played a role in land use, resource allocation, or other planning decisions. 5.Speculate on how local knowledge concerning a decision to locate a controversial land use (e.g., retail megastore, strip mall, strip mine, or halfway house) may vary by community. 6.Explain how citizen participation improves local government planning processes and outcomes.

21 Some Ideas for Places / Issues Oregon Coast Marine Protected Area

29 Some Ideas for Places / Issues City of Corvallis or City of Portland Land Use, Projected Development OSU Student Empowerment (e.g., voter registration) Others?

30 Group Project Work in groups of 3 Work together throughout the term Gather information (including interviews) Build a rich web site Present results as a group, Nov. 26
