Lastly, the tool-kit will train users on skills to visually represent their data to highlight issues, risks etc.This tool-kit falls within the Participatory GIS (PGIS) framework which focuses on direct community involvement in knowledge creation through GIS technologies. This document will accompany provided free open source software, shapefiles and georeferenced images. The tools included are: QGIS, Apache Open Office and VLC. In addition to this video tutorials, shapefiles and georeferenced datasets are provided to assist users.The tools and methods has been successfully piloted in three communities in Fiji.It has also been trialed with 30 participants that gave feedback and evaluated the tool-kit as a whole.
