Discussion: Community Mapping

Community mapping is a process that allows people to gather accurate information about how a community operates in order to mobilise its members and put them in a better position to represent themselves. Rather than taking a broad approach in generating large scale conversations or recruiting supporters from any location to engage in activism around a cause, it involves a longer-term process of listening and communication with and within a specific community. It requires activists to help community members with the mapping as a step towards them coming up with their own organizing strategies, as opposed to them being imposed from outside.

The process is time and resources intensive and requires an initial shift in focus. It has been successful in building a platform for long term social change. Discussion allows for a map of the community's make-up, as well as how decisions are made within it and where authority is held.

Those who may try to block community discussion should be identified. Issues may be emphasized from the beginning or the process may seek to build local connections before turning to problems and responses. Information can be documented in a variety of ways.

Community Resource Mapping: A New Strategy

Community resource mapping is not a new strategy. It has been used in many different ways. Community resource mapping is a type of asset mapping. Community resource mapping is a process used by many different groups at different stages in order to align resources and policies in relation to specific system goals, strategies, and expected outcomes.

Community Asset Mapping for Old Age Care

If you are interested in Old age care, you can draw a map to identify people who need nursing. It will help you see where support is lacking. Community asset mapping helps you identify strengths and weaknesses of a community.

The results of an asset map can give you a new direction for your program and make it easy for you to make the right decision for the community's betterment. A map of the food drive can show a lack of programs in the far reaches of the community, but low-income families in the neighborhood can show a lack of programs. A local map that provides as many details as possible and highlights community landmarks is what you should have.

You can use stickers to highlight the location of asset groups. If you have relevant information individuals, you can also map them. You can use the asset map to direct program priorities.

The Chicago Neighborhood Map

Chicago has fifty wards. Each ward has a political district and voters are represented by an elected Alderman. The Chicago City Council has fifty aldermen.

OpenStreechMap: A Mapbox-based Web Browser for OpenStreetMap

Volunteers use a handheld gps unit, a notebook, digital camera, or voice recorder to collect map data. The data is entered into the database using a number of software tools. The Mapathon is a competition where the OpenStreetMap team and non-profit organizations map a particular area.

Mapbox, which was originally financed by the Knight Foundation, has a default web browser editor called iD, an application called D3.js, and a desktop application called Potlatch. A mapper can do ground surveys on foot, bicycle, or in a car. Map data was usually recorded on a gps unit.

In late 2006 Yahoo! made their aerial imagery available for tracing to OSM contributors, which simplified mapping of readily visible and identifiable features. The project still uses volunteers' gps traces to help identify and classify features such as footpath, as well as providing ground-truth for aerial imagery alignment. Once the data has been collected, it is uploaded onto the project's website with appropriate data and entered into the database.

Contributions to the project are possible without using a gps unit as collecting and uploading data may be separated from editing objects. Most roads in the US originate from the Census Bureau. Some areas contain water features from the National Hydrography Dataset, which were firstsourced from the Geographic Names Information System.

In the UK, some data is imported. Canada's CanVec data and the GeoBase provide landcover and streets. While OpenStreetMap is meant to be a central data source, it is only one of many options that highlight different elements of the map or emphasize design and performance.

Toolbox for Geographic Information Systems

Graphics and large amounts of data can be involved in the creation of agis software. A simple and easy-to-use GUI is crucial in making the software available to anyone who needs it. The use of a geographic information system requires some preparation.

Why would you go to the trouble? There are a number of good reasons. The planning, implementation, and evaluation of an intervention or initiative can be done with the help of the powerful tool of the geographic information system.

Some of the most common types of data that might be of use to Tool Box users are demographic, those that identify people in an area by different categories or levels of categories You can find links to a lot of data sources at Geographic Information Systems. The University of Arkansas has links to many data sources from each of the 50 states.

Designing Survey Templates to Support Local Leadership

Local leaders can better understand the challenges facing their communities by getting public input. Understanding the dynamics between place and people is important, given that most public projects and plans have a geographical component. You can use templates created by other members of your organization and the public to design surveys that are in line with internal or industry patterns of practice.

OSM: Open Source Software for the SME community

The project is special because of the OSM community. Thousands of volunteers from all over the world are updating the map as their world changes. Every update is visible to all other users.

There are no map cycle releases that are typical of large organizations. The OSM project is supported by a range of mature open source software projects that are evolving much faster than any closed source competitor. There are many examples of mapping platforms like Mapbox and Mapzen, as well as the mapnik cartographical library, osrm routing engine, nominatimgeocoding engine, leaflet js map library, turf geospatial analysis library, and more.

Making Maps of the World

People like you can make a map of the world. It was started in the UK in 2004 because of the lack of good map data that was free to use. The map is created and maintained by more than 5 million registered users and more than 1 million map contributors in every country in the world. The data is used by many people.
