The development, application and evaluation of participatory geographic information system methodologies for improved environmental decision making
This thesis reflects upon almost two-decades of my continued use, reflection and development of methods utilising maps as discussion tools allowing different groups views on environmental issues andExpand
Utility assessment of a map-based online geo-collaboration tool.
This research aims to contribute to a scientific approach to geo-collaboration in which the engineering of novel spatial decision support methods is complemented by a critical assessment of their utility in controlled, realistic experiments. Expand
Scalability of Techniques for Online Geographic Visualization of Web Site Hits
Investigating the scalability of four representative techniques for dynamic map generation and display shows that all four techniques are suitable for small data sets comprising a few thousand points, but that the two HTML techniques scale to larger data sets very poorly across all three variables.

Evaluating the potential of internet GIS technology for managing and sharing diverse spatial information: A case study of the National Trust for Scotland
Emerging Internet GIS technology offers an attractive solution to some data interoperability problems by incorporating existing Internet framework standards, providing familiar web browsers as userExpand
Development of a conceptual framework for the analysis and the classification of "Public Participation GIS"
Collaborative Public Participatory Web Geographic Information System: A Groupware-Based Online Synchronous Collaboration to Support Municipal Planning
The study aims to focus on public participation and geo-collaboration facilitated with information sharing, interactive geo-conferencing, real-time map, and data sharing with tools to draw features or add annotation to the map while discussions, uploading documents, and live communication. Expand
Geospatial Technologies and Geography Education in a Changing World: Geospatial Practices and Lessons Learned
This book is an initiative presented by the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union. It focuses particularly on what has been learned from geospatial projects andExpand
Practice of Geospatial Technologies in Informal Learning
This chapter focuses on the most recurrent methods used by practitioners to practice geospatial technologies (GSTs) in informal learning.
UML-based requirement modeling of Web online synchronous collaborative public participatory GIS
It is hypothesized that the Co-PPGIS would help to increase the degree to which the citizen, local bodies, environmental assessment, government agencies, and decision authorities work at the same time by using the single platform but at different locations with a lower cost and more effective real-time collaborative communication channels.

Usability evaluation of collaborative PPGIS-GeoCWMI for supporting public participation during municipal planning and management services
The study shows that there are significant differences in the GeoCWMI usability among the different groups of participants in relation to their education, Web experience, and participatory practices and are more usable for users with GIS/Web experience. Expand


Web-based public participation geographical information systems: an aid to local environmental decision-making
Current research examining the potential of the World-Wide Web as a means of increasing public participation in local environmental decision making in the UK is discussed. The paper considersExpand
The potential of Web-based mapping and virtual reality technologies for modelling urban environments
Abstract The paper will consider the potential of interactive mapping and virtual reality technologies being developed on the World Wide Web (WWW) for the visualisation, modelling and analysis ofExpand
