Towards a post-colonial GIS

Kate Moore

Abstract

Participatory Geographical Information systems (PGIS) are being used with Indigenous communities worldwide who are engaging with mapping technologies developed essentially in the developed world. However Indigenous people have their own understanding and cultures that include ways of knowing and understanding the world around them. This paper is an initial attempt to review different ways of spatial thinking and to make preliminary suggestions as to how modern visualization methods may be used to portray these representations.
