Guelph's Culture Map

Back in February 2012, I was hired by the City of Guelph to work on the Cultural Mapping Project. My past experience in developing the One of a Kind Show database became a huge asset, both in building the culture map's initial framework and in connecting with artists, businesses and cultural organizations. I was thrilled to be establishing new relationships within the community, but this time (finally!) on a local level. Working for the city and with Giant Goat was an incredible experience. For months, I was immersed in a world of occupational classification systems, data collection forms, excel spread sheets, keywords, and links to other wacky maps that I referred to as models to adopt...or avoid. Here are a few of my favourites that were collected/bookmarked along the way:
