A Community GIS
Spawned from an entry on Ed Parsons’ blog –

  • Community GIS – Information/data provided by the community
  • Community Mapping – mapping locations of members of a community
  • Community Integrated GIS – experts supporting communities through the use of GIS

Of course this all ties into Sue’s User Augmented Mapping, but Frank and Sue coined new phrases this week that we edited out to keep the podcast under 45 minutes.
