  • 2. Discussion Points
    • Mapping for advocacy and social justice
      • Why use maps?
      • How can they be utilized?
        • Our experiences
  • 3. Space and Regional Equity
    • Why are maps particularly effective in dealing with issues of equity?
      • Regional, racial and social inequity often manifest as spatial inequity
      • Maps are naturally the best tools to display this spatial phenomena
    • Other disciplines and sectors are using mapping to problem solve
      • Private industry
  • 4. Maps: Powerful Visual Tools
    • Why is a map an excellent visual tool to inform someone about an issue/problem or solution?
      • Maps are incredibly efficient, compacting volumes of data into single pictures that can be understood at a glance
        • One map may contain tens of thousands of pieces of information than can be understood in seconds
      • A good map can enable you to tell a story or solve a problem
        • Research has shown that people can solve problems faster with map based information, than by looking at charts, tables or graphs
  • 5. Using Maps for Advocacy
    • In our work we see mapping as serving two primary advocacy goals
      • Analysis
        • Existing conditions, spatial trends, scenarios, optimization etc.
      • Storytelling
        • What's your narrative?
  • 6. Analytical Examples

    • Are hospital investments benefiting communities of color? (Columbus)
    • How should EITC advocacy be tailored? (Columbus)

  • 16. Opportunity Mapping: Combining Analysis with a Strong Narrative
    • Opportunity mapping is a research tool used to understand the dynamics of “opportunity” within metropolitan areas
    • The purpose of opportunity mapping is to illustrate where opportunity rich communities exist (and assess who has access to these communities)
      • Also, to understand what needs to be remedied in opportunity poor communities
  • 17.
    • Subsidized housing opportunities in Baltimore are generally clustered in the region’s lowest opportunity neighborhoods
