The Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) has long since been a hero to me: the dedication, the participatory politics and the clear and open campaigns that are respectfully fought. It seems only fitting to use their fabulous community resource map - created in conjunction with the Open Youth Network - as an example for this article.

Brief article about an intensive participatory GIS workshop held with rural Indonesians, including training of geographic and GIS concepts and fieldwork mapping, with a focus on peaceful resolution of boundary disputes between tribes and villages.
Feeling ironically lost in a world of maps? These critical resources will help you get your bearings!
