Abstract
This chapter provides a case study of a Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR)/Public Participation Geographic Information Systems (PPGIS) project that focused on the health concerns of food insecurity for low-income populations. The study highlights the use of PPGIS as a technique to support a bottom-up participatory approach in order to diversify conversation points regarding the health issues at hand.
