Methoden des partizipativen Kartierens begreifen Karten und die Praxis des Kartierens als wirkungsvolle Instrumente, um nicht nur räumliches Wissen zu visualisieren, sondern auch neue Wege der Wissensproduktion und Kommunikation zu gehen. Partizipatives Kartieren bringt Ansätze der partizipativen Sozialforschung mit Kartographie und Geographischen Informationssystemen (GIS) zusammen. Kartographie und GIS sind zwei der zentralen Visualisierungs- und Analyseinstrumente in der Geographie. Dieser Beitrag gibt einen einführenden Einblick in das Feld partizipativer Kartographie bzw. partizipativen Kartierens.
