Community mapping


Researchers pursued an asset-mapping approach by supporting community leaders and young people, paired with University of Costa Rica students, to define the boundary of each community, explore its geographical contours and raw materials, and identify artisans and significant sites of interest. The results of this approach have been applied to the project’s collaborative map, addressing the connection between the community, its landscape and its artisans. The map has been used to promote the communities both locally and for tourism.
