     Resource mapping is a tool that can be used to visualize resources,  
     land, forests, coral reefs or waterways.  Mapping can be a  
     participatory approach and may incorporate the indigenous knowledge 
     of resource users in local settings such as urban neighborhoods or 
     rural communities.

     The tool can be used to identify problems and issues most felt by 
     local residents and by stakeholders; articulate the 
     state of 
     resources and its transformation through space and time.  It can be 
     also used to identify the factors affecting resource use and 

     Mapping can be used as a strategy for participation and as a basis   
     for planning, decision-making and action-taking.
