Public Participation Geographic Information System and Indigenous Society: New Partnership of Indigenous Peoples in Taiwan
AbstractTaiwan President Chen signed the New Partnership Agreement with aborigines in his 2000 election campaign. The Council of Indigenous Peoples launched a project in 2001 to map the traditional territories of each tribal community. More than 400 aboriginal communities have completed their mapping work. 7his endeavor will serve as the basis for the implementation of future aboriginal autonomy. The public participation geographic information system (PPGIS) was employed to serve as a platform for participatory discussion. 7his paper describes the design considerations of the PPGIS, the procedure of PPGIS, and a number of issues regarding indigenous mapping and PPGIS. the paper concludes with the multidimensionalities of indigenous mapping.
