What Is Community Asset Mapping?

The asset mapping method is used in community development. This facilitates identifying and documenting existing resources in a community, such as institutions, individuals, and citizen associations.

How to Conduct Community Asset Mapping?

  • Identify community resources that can help you identify information about the assets.
  • Find out what the problems and concerns are in your community by meeting with local leaders and citizens. You can also conduct a survey.
  • Set a geographic boundary for the map. Decide what kinds of assets you need to include in the map, such as local businesses.
  • Identify the community’s physical assets. This includes lands, transportation systems, buildings, etc. As the next step, identify economic assets. This includes what the citizens in the community produce and consume. Find out about the history of the community.
  • Write down the skills, capacities, experiences, passions, and talents of the members of the community that can contribute to its strengthening. Identify local associations like sports clubs and local institutions such as schools and libraries.
  • If needed, invite your colleagues to the same workspace and work in real-time - as if you’re working from the same room. Use Creately’s inbuilt video conferencing to speak to your colleagues while working on the analysis.
  • Export your diagram in JPEG, SVG, PNG or PDF formats or share with colleagues for real-time feedback collection. You can also share it with other interested parties with a secure diagram sharing link.
  • Present your analysis to key stakeholders with Creately’s advanced presentation capabilities. Share an edit/review diagram link with others so anyone can easily access it to monitor the progress.
