MAPTALK™ offers a mutual GIS that makes efficient use
of this geographic information in spatial decision making processes
were stakeholders feel no qualms using it. Stakeholder participation
and group decision making is effectively supported by digital
support of spatial brainstorms, discussions and (geographic)
information sharing. MAPTALK™ thereby facilitates dialogue,
decision making and constructive engagement.
MapTalk can be considered to be an accelerator for spatial planning
processes. The use of MapTalk results in a directly available
cohered plan, with a well documented process. Together with the
Landscape center of Alterra and Wageningen Interactive Network
Group (WING) a service is provided to facilitate interactive
spatial planning processes.
