Co-Creating a Digital Participatory Mapping Toolkit for Social Change

This project is to co-develop and pilot a participatory mapping toolkit alongside multiple Boston-area community based organizations and resident researchers interested in creating digital proposals for social change. The toolkit will consist of guidelines for hosting focus group discussions centered on a map annotation activity, a process for digitizing these annotated maps using accessible software tools, and supports for synthesizing community knowledge into a data stories advocating for a planning action.
