This project aimed to create a editable asset map for the Downtown Eastside community. In partnering with 312 Main, a community engaged in the pilot Resilient Neighbourhoods Program, our team utilized GIS software to map spatial and non-spatial data to create the foundation for 312 Main to further their Resilient Neighbourhood Strategy.
