This paper investigating the legal standing for Participatory Mapping related-aspect towards enriching authoritative geospatial information under the implementation of Geospatial Information Act of Indonesia. The research shows that there is a gap between government vision on providing a legal base to enable participatory mapping and the implementation perceived by participatory mapping actors.

The research is vital as a remark for ongoing collaboration in Indonesia and provides a reference for a similar condition that may exist.
