WHAT IS MAP.SOCIAL?

map.social is a fun and engaging map-based outreach platform that allows users to individually or collectively create maps in a common map gallery. map.social allows residents, constituents, community stakeholders, and others to provide map referenced comments – a way for anyone to create a map of "their" community in a gallery that can be viewed by fellow community members. Individual maps can be collectively analyzed or brought into GIS for deeper analysis.

map.social is powered by Esri maps and allows residents, stakeholders, and other participants to provide feedback and comments tied spatially to an area or point. In essence, the tool provides a way for any resident to create a map of their community, identifying their own issues, opportunities, weaknesses and threats. The world around us has changed however, and the widespread use of technology is commonplace. While traditional outreach techniques are effective and important, map.social allows "charrette style" participation via the internet by providing the means for anyone from anywhere who has access to a computer to mark up a map, locate priority issues and areas, and create the narrative to go along with their map.
