Volunteered Geographic Information and the City - Call for Papers

Recommended Posts

The emergence of volunteered geographic information (VGI) or user-generated geographic information has drawn significant attention from scholars investigating the ways in which VGI is produced, created and used. Many of these studies have been situated in the city. This issue calls for papers that engage with discussions on a broad theme of "VGI and the city".

Papers are invited to address any of the following topics (but not limited to):

- new spatial media and urban experiences;
- new ways of visualizing urban spaces;
- VGI and urban governance;
- VGI and participatory planning;
- citizen mapping in the city;
- crowd-sourced urban data;
- VGI and urban infrastructure.

Case studies in the Global South and comparative perspectives on VGI constructions in different urban contexts are encouraged.
