From Mental Maps to GeoParticipation (presentation at University of Johannesburg)

Yesterday I had the privilege to present some of my research at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, where I am currently as a visiting scholar via the Erasmus+ programme. I lectured for about 100 undergraduates in Geography programme and my presentation dealt with history of GIS, rise of Participatory GIS and how mental maps and GeoParticipation as concepts play and important role in current crowdsourcing and citizen science.

In case somebody is interested, you can find my presentation here (From Mental Maps to GeoParticipation). The talk was partly based on my paper published in the Special Issue of the Cartographic Journal.
