      Speaker: Alexandre Repetti, Visiting Scholar in the Geographic Information
      Science Center. "System for Monitoring Urban Functionalities (SMURF): An
      Application of Participatory GIS"
      *
      Time and place: Wednesday, October 6, 1 to 2 p.m., 315A Wurster Hall
      *
      Summary:
      The System for Monitoring Urban Functionalities (SMURF) is a GIS software
      application designed for participatory contexts. In a strategic land-use
      or urban management approach, SMURF offers a database platform for
      collecting and sharing spatial and non-spatial information on land-use and
      projects, for monitoring and controlling the local development and for
      comparison with
      other communities. The talk will start with a brief introduction of the
      context and limits of GIS applications for land-use and urban planning and

      management,
      It will then present the SMURF instrument and its data management
      components, as well as
      the participatory data collection approach. It will introduce an
      application case,
      the city of Thies, Senegal, where SMURF supports the local management for
      four years.
      It will end with prospects for adapting the instruments to the Internet
      and
      conclusion.
