Reindeer herders, GIS and land use planning

In the Vilhelmina Model Forest, Sweden, local stakeholders and indigenous Sami communities use Participatory Geographic Information Systems (P-GIS) to reduce land use conflicts. The tool facilitated the visual understanding of migration corridors accessed by reindeer herders and areas used by other land users. Land users adjusted their activities to allow herders to maintain their traditional routes.
