PGIS as a sustained (and sustainable?) practice: First Nation Experiences in Treaty 8 BC, Canada (PLA 54)

Craig Candler, Rachel Olson, Steven DeRoy, and Kieran Broderick document the history of PGIS practice in the Treaty 8 area of British Columbia, Canada. PGIS practice often evolves to address specific issues being faced by a community. This means that multiple tools might be used together, or in sequence to deal with those issues. The authors describe the range of different practices from community mapping through to PGIS development and application, and methodologies used. The authors identify the Treaty 8 area as a critical site for learning about sustained, as well as sustainable, practice.
