Attend Our Digital Capital Week Gov 2.0 Panel: Using GIS to Enhance Citizen Participation
On the Wednesday of Digital Capital Week (DCWeek), I will be moderating a panel that will discuss how to use geographic information systems (GIS) to enhance citizen participation. DCWeek's June 16 program is devoted to Gov 2.0 and Org 2.0, and this particular panel will examine many topics central to Gov 2.0 conversations:
- Ensuring data transparency;
- Tapping citizen-volunteered geographic information;and
- Soliciting citizen participation in decision making.
The panel will feature Dr. Sukumar Ganapati, Assistant Professor Florida International University, and author of "Using Geographic Information Systems to Increase Citizen Engagement" and Barney Krucoff, GIS Manager District of Columbia's Office of The Chief Technology Officer.
