The Community Toolbox , a service of Work Group for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas defines a community asset (or community resource, a very similar term) as anything that can be used to improve the quality of community life. The real value and payoff of identifying assets is in actions that will improve the community. Community asset mapping identifies strengths within the community. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a method of digital (i.e., computerized) mapping that can show you where particular people, events, things, or conditions are, and give you other information about them as well. It links data to its geographic location.
