Techniques for Participatory Approaches

  • 1249 Accesses

Part of the Landscape Series book series (LAEC,volume 24)


A challenge of comprehensive landscape planning communication processes is to integrate digital information technology into planning processes by matching the present technological capabilities to the specific requirements and tasks of the different planning phases. Web 2.0 technologies hold the potential for supporting landscape planning tasks such as scoping, landscape analysis, assessment, planning concepts, assigning objectives and measures, implementation concepts, implementation support and continuous updates and monitoring. Application fields of crowd sourcing and social media/networks are discussed and recommendations are made for deciding which E-tools best fulfil the interactive functions requested in the planning process.
