    On April 13th, join us for the first of our storytelling webinar series ‘Story Lines: Experiences of participatory mapping.’

    In Episode 1 we explore the roots of our practice. Host Jon Corbett and three recognized leaders in participatory mapping will reflect on their experiences and the development of this field of practice. Drawing on many decades of applied work, our speakers will share anecdotes and lessons learned, as well as consider the future development of participatory mapping methods and our community of practice.

    Will this be recorded? I would love to join this event, since I have been especially involved and interested in PPGIS, community mental mapping, etc., but I am giving a presentation tomorrow at that same time. Thanks. JAM

    Faculty Profile:

    “Geography, sir, is ruinous in its effects on the lower classes. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are comparatively safe, but geography invariably leads to revolution.” (1879 testimony before a Select Committee of the House of Commons, London, England, regarding expenditures of the London School Board)

    “The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, [s]he’s one who asks the right questions.” (Claude Lévi-Strauss, 1964, Le Cru et le Cuit [The Raw and the Cooked])

    “Those who plan do better than those who do not plan, even though they rarely stick to their plan.” Winston Churchill

    “Be sure that no good may be expected of anyone who is satisfied with what he knows. To investigate is the task of the knowledgeable.” (Book of the Sea, 1513, by Piri Re’is, Ottoman cartographer, geographer, and navigator to Suleiman I)


    I’m not sure if it will be recorded. I just looked at the event page on their website and see that they have a free membership that one can join in order to access their resources, so if they record it they will probably post it there.
