The advent of open source mapping technologies has in principle created the conditions for the emergence of a popular do-it-yourself cartography articulating the concerns, political and personal, of all citizens. In this seminar we have brought together leading practitioners who have pioneered the contribution of map making to the development of citizen social science, developed participatory methods of community mapping, and explored the limits and conditions of democratising the production of knowledge in and against the urban planning process.
