Community Mapping

Data Visualization, Community Asset Mapping, Community Envisioning, Historic Preservation, and more

Many schools, local governments, and organizations are interested in collecting community resource information, such as: theaters and entertainment establishments, dining and healthy food choices, parks and recreation areas, gardens and commons, boat launches and water access, libraries and free internet access points. Simply by pointing and clicking, a map of the best coffee shops, bakeries, dry cleaners, and other services can be built by the people who know the best, the local customers. Web-based interactive asset mapping allows students or community members to sign-up and add their own thoughts and pictures… an online community involvement project!

TCNJ Bonner Center Community Mapping: Recently, TCNJ Bonner has piloted a series of community mapping projects as a way to connect campus and community efforts. The most valuable component of community mapping is the production of new data sets that are a direct reflection of questions people in our network have asked; What is the collective carbon offset of trees on TCNJ’s campus? Where are the abandoned properties in the East -Trenton area? What businesses operate downtown and what obstacles persist to economic stability/growth?
