Negotiating technology - (Re)considering the use of GIS by indigenous peoples

Auteur :
ENGLE, S.T.

Description :
The dialectical context of GIS is explored by (re)considering the opportunities and challenges of applying GIS as a cross-cultural communication device. A position is negotiated which interprets GIS as conditionally empowering provided that indigenous peoples consider their symbolic representation in, and physical access to GIS before making an initial investment in the technology.
