Ginger, Jeff, Jackman, Serra and Gant, Jon (2011): Enabling spatial data infrastructure development: collaboration, supportive web technologies and São Tomé Africa. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 678-679.

This poster presents an overview of the São Tomé Map Project, the culmination of research conducted as part of the ongoing collaboration between representatives of the country of São Tomé and the Community Informatics Initiative (CII), a research and teaching center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The project's goal was (and remains) to ensure the people of São Tomé access to, and ownership of, relevant local spatial data so they could better make informed decisions and policies governing development of their land, resources and civic infrastructure. To this end, an interdisciplinary crew of researchers teamed up with key São Tomé locals to work towards empowering the community to address civic and environmental challenges through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and innovative collaborative web-based tools like Omeka, Greenstone and Wordpress. Out of this work came a potentially important contribution to academic scholarship and community development practice: a process and associated model intended to aid in the assembly of spatial data infrastructure (SDI) in similar settings, such as in other post-colonial developing countries. The related poster introduces viewers to the social context surrounding São Tomé, the purpose and application of SDI's and GIS, and substantively reviews the project development process and associated exemplar supportive technologies.
