The Cultural Heritage of Historic European Cities and Public Participatory Geographic Information Systems (GIS)’ was the title of a recent workshop held at the University of York.

The workshop explored the potential for GIS to deliver greatly improved access to urban heritage resources of all kinds to the general public and to the academy.

The workshop aimed to address a number of themes which surround the use of Public Participatory GIS, including:

  • The lack of guidance on creating such an interdisciplinary public resource;
  • a lack of standards;
  • the legal issues related to accessing and disseminating data.
