Maptionnaire is a community engagement platform that aims to bridge the gap between planners or decision-makers and citizens. Maptionnaire Community Engagement Platform is a modular online platform with map-based engagement at its core. The service enables the creation of community engagement activities, systematic and comprehensive data collection, analysis and reporting of data and activities. Maptionnaire service has been used in 40 countries in more than 10,000 projects. The total number of survey participants exceeds 500,000 and there are more than 10 million map-based responses by them. Maptionnaire has been used both in academic research projects and in public participation processes. The participatory planning projects vary in geographical scale stretching from nationwide surveys to those concerning single buildings. In terms of the project topics, green and blue area planning and management projects together with transportation planning projects comprise over half of the cases. In regard to the phases of the planning project, both extremes, the early initiation and the evaluation phase stand out. Cities of Helsinki, Stockholm, New York, Denver, San Francisco, Edinburgh, and Copenhagen are among the many cities that have used Maptionnaire in their community engagement processes.
