Participation is an efficient and effortless way to gather information about citizens’ experiences, values, and opinions throughout the whole planning process. No matter if you are compiling a master plan, a detailed plan, or a more general land-use vision, read how the versatile functions of Maptionnaire could be utilized in each phase of your project (or be it any digital participatory platforms).
When speaking of digital participation in the planning process, you’re essentially competing against other things that your potential respondent would rather be doing, such as liking things on Facebook or pinning latest trends on Pinterest. You obviously want the respondent to spend some time on your project providing useful insights for your work. For this reason, you also need to enable a smooth public participation process so that people are excited to take part in it.
