Geography and Geographic Information Science

The community is often where mutually beneficial research and education outcomes are discovered together through the power of citizen science, maps, apps, and drones. Our work through Citizen Science GIS at University of Central Florida and in Belize seeks to engage academics and community organizations/residents in shared knowledge production focused on community-engaged research that benefits real-world communities. 

 

In this talk, we unravel the potential of engaging communities and science in meaningful collaboration. We will highlight opportunities to use interactive and visual mapping technologies to share the spatial stories and knowledge of community members around the world to understand some of the most pressing challenges in coastal communities.
