Stakeholder mapping is a way of geographically showing and analyzing the stakeholders in a situation, along with their relationships, values, attributes, or other information that might impact the situation.
Stakeholder Maps can help remove barriers in the process of identifying community character.
They are very simple to complete, requiring only pen and paper, but may take a significant amount of time and effort in understanding the stakeholders.
Stakeholder maps are only useful if they are built upon clear thinking and understandings of the community; they are often most accurate if completed by a diverse group of people.
Stakeholder maps may or may not be public documents; they may be most effective when they distinctly characterize stakeholders, but characterizations may offend if they become public.
