We've been using maps for many years to point volunteers and donors to tutor/mentor programs in various neighborhoods, and to help people build communities of support for programs all over Chicago, or in specific districts, such as the 7th Congressional District, which is shown on this map.
However, we have never found donors who would value this to the point that they would invest in the year to year work it takes to build the database, build the maps, teach people to use them, etc.
Thus, I was encouraged when I read this article today on a blog titled VerySpatial.com
Even better, this was posted on Twitter and forwarded to many others. Hopefully it leads one or more benefactors to come forward as sponsors for the T/MC and our map making. If you'd like that role, call 312-492-9614.
