  3. What is participating photo mapping?
    PPM is presented here as an integrated suite of digital tools, narrative interviews and participatory research protocols that enable transdisciplinary community-based health partnerships to produce shared practical knowledge.

    people can indicate where experiences occurred (via maps), what experience looked like (via photos or drawings) and how experiences unfolded (via narratives)

    • PPM unfolds in a four step iterative process.
    • 1 participants are provided digital cameras and GPS units with which to take pictures of their neighborhood, documenting routine use of community and recreation environments.
    • 2 the photos become the objects of interviews in which individual and collective narratives are attached to particular images.
    • 3 the images are mapped as part of a neighborhood-level GIS that may include other spatial data. This step produces a qualitative/quantitative GIS focused on the experience of health and place.
    • 4 involves actions aimed at policy and decision makers identified by the participants.

    PPM combines participatory photography, community mapping, and lived experience interviews in order to capture both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of people's experience of place and health.
