What is a Community Mapping Worksheet? The worksheet walks users through the steps required to help determine:
- Which community are you trying to reach?
- What types of stories do you want to tell?
- What is the purpose? What are the stories for?
- What are potential barriers or obstacles to consider?
For stations trying to build up local/regional news efforts, or those wanting to evaluate overall program content, this worksheet is useful to help create a visual map of how to better connect with your community and achieve the station’s programming goals.
