Each profession and culture carries moral parameters and codes of ethics. As PGIS is understood as a multidisciplinary practice it is meant to respond to a blend of different moral rules. Practical ethics for PGIS practitioners, facilitators, technology intermediaries and researchers is intended to provide non-exhaustive guidelines for making appropriate ethical choices for those practicing or wanting to practice PGIS.
The guidelines are not meant to be exhaustive, as each culture and situation may have its own moral imperatives. It is the obligation of the individuals to make their best judgment to ensure good practice.
