Why do maps matter?

Participatory asset mapping allows communities to take a strengths-based and place-based approach to community development. Maps that highlight the availability or lack of community assets can present a powerful tool, when trying to make a case for needed policy, whether locally or on a state level. Community-engaged mapping is a group mapping exercise designed to answer specific research questions and gather feedback from community members (who live, work or attend school in the area), for the purpose of developing place-based planning, policy and interventions.
