Asset Mapping

The Community Geography Project of IMS augments its work for communities in the Portland region through an ongoing series of GIS and Asset Mapping (adapted from Kretzmann and McKnight) PSU Senior Capstone courses. Multi-disciplinary teams of students are introduced to issues that community partners bring to us that require a better understanding of community assets and the possible connections among them. Students do research, analyses (including GIS analysis), and develop presentations, reports, and GIS products that communicate their findings to the partners and community members at large.

Community partners have included: Neighborhood Pride Team; the Caring Community of North Portland; Southeast Portland Caring Community; Portland's Bureau of Parks and Recreation; the Regional Arts and Culture Council; the Portland Farmers Market; the Center for Public Participation (PSU); Southeast Uplift; and North Portland Neighborhood Services in partnership with Multnomah County Health Department and Kaiser Permanente's Healthy Eating/Active Living Initiative.
