Seeing Places, Shaping Places: the small area mapping revolution

11th October 2009.

This Local Work provides a case study of how small area mapping has empowered managers in the public sector and their partners to inform policy priorities and guide their implementation in a way that is responsive to very local conditions. It draws on a process developed with Wolverhampton City Council’s Library and Information Services, which is highly replicable because it is a way of communicating the dynamics of a range of indicators within individual neighbourhoods.
