 Mapping and development of networks underpins a lot of our current work on localities as social ecosystems. Mapping and development of networks underpins a lot of our current work on localities as social ecosystems.
  
-**Latest**: we are [discussing mapping here](https://​www.networkedcity.online/​t/​how-mapping-visionaries-for-responsible-tech-could-help-develop-a-people-centred-approach-to-smarter-london/​148) on the Networked City forum. The forum is only in beta, with a few people, but let me know if you would like to join in [[david@socialreporter.com]]+We are working on two fronts:
  
-##Theory+* Local mapping to help connect people and organisations in neighbourhoods and boroughs 
 +* Mapping of pan-London networks - [update here](http://​networkedcity.blog/​2019/​07/​23/​networked-city-in-practice-maps-apps-games-and-a-model-for-commons-2/​)
  
-[Living Maps Review Spring 2018 edition](http://​livingmaps.review/​journal/​index.php/​LMR/​article/​view/​110/​157) carries a paper by Drew Mackie ​and David Wilcox explaining social networks and how to map them. [Download here](http://​socialreporter.co.uk.s3.amazonaws.com/​docs/​Mappingnetworks.pdf). The article covers: +In each instance we are working with both geographic maps and network maps. [[networks:netmaps|Here'​s how we are building ​network maps]].

-* The difference between a list, with central connections,​ and a network with many-to-many connections +
-* The comparative value of network maps, geographic maps and catalogues  +
-* How [kumu.io](https://​kumu.io) can be used to build both network and geo maps +
-* What network maps can tell us +
-* How the imaginary locality Slipham provides a way to explore mapping at personal and neighbourhood levels in workshops+

 Drew Mackie and David Wilcox are working with Barbara Brayshay to build on the work of JustMap in creating geographic maps. For example, here's an online map of the StARTNetwork in Tottenham. It shows groups, organisations and facilities, with popup information. [View it online here](https://​justmap.carto.com/​builder/​22b2a6a2-12a2-42a6-9910-d0e93a476eea/​embed). Drew Mackie and David Wilcox are working with Barbara Brayshay to build on the work of JustMap in creating geographic maps.

 Network maps can be used to explore collaborations between organisations and individuals working in a particular area or on a project or programme. These maps are not just visualisations - they can be analysed to show clusters of sharing and collaboration,​ searched to show needs and the availability of skills and resources. ​ Network maps can be used to explore collaborations between organisations and individuals working in a particular area or on a project or programme.
