WHAT WE DO: Asset Maps and Asset Mapping

What Exactly Is an Asset Map?

An asset map is a pictorial representation of the and resources, assets and 'gifts' discovered in and around the community during the the Community Capacity Building and Asset Mapping © process (CCBAM) and shows the relationship that have been built between and among groups and people.  The asset map illustrates how the resources (usually businesses and associations) are related to each other and how they became and can become connected around the question being explored through Community Capacity Building & Asset Mapping.

Goals and Objectives of Asset Maps  

The overall goals of creating an asset map are:

  • To provide a visual description of the assets and the relationships that exist and those that have potential between organizations, groups and  people within the community.

  • To complement and accentuate the positive and unique learning from the  Community Capacity Building & Asset Mapping ©.

  • To inspire the community to mobilize and become animated around the question explored through Community Capacity Building & Asset Mapping©.

The measurable objectives of creating an asset map are:

Prior to writing the story of the Community Building journey the project team will:

  • Create an asset map according to the "Mapping Method"

  • Ensure that the asset map catches people's interest and encourages investigation into the connections being illustrated

  • Ensure that the map shows all of the important and unique connections yet maintains simplicity so that the community can understand, follow, and make use of the map.

  • Ensure that many are involved in the creation, assembly and critique of the asset map.

Asset Maps

These are examples of asset maps for the Community Capacity Building and Asset Mapping© initiatives that have been started by some communities and neighbourhoods.

These maps will give you a general idea of what asset mapping is. Recently we enhanced the quality of the maps, some of these are now .pdf's.  Adobe Reader is required to be able to read the files, it is a free download go to  www.adobe.com
