The Center for Community Mapping (CCM), an affiliate of VERTICES, LLC, focuses on Public Participatory Community Mapping project planning and implementation. CCM seeks to unify and strengthen communities by offering individuals, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions the tools to help manage their interests. Targeting educational institutions and non-profit organizations, CCM is a strong proponent of introducing innovative mapping technology to the non-GIS specialist. With easy-to-use web-based applications, our objective at CCM is to make interactive mapping accessible to all communities.
The Center for Community Mapping empowers grass-root stakeholders with mapping technology to foster participatory planning, community education, and cooperative organization. Collaborative mapping supports and facilitates an integrated approach to environmental conservation, open-space and historic preservation, neighborhood revitalization and urban planning, community asset inventories, and economic development as well as expands awareness of local needs, issues and special places as determined by the community’s own members.
