What is a Net-Map or Net-Mapping?

Net-Map is a participatory tool that combines the visual aspects of creating a map with an interview.

A Net-Map allows us to better understand connections, knowledge flow and bottlenecks in a community, and opportunities to improve project planning, monitoring, and evaluation. Facilitators of Net-Map can discover information they never would have learned through a conventional interview due to the discussion and visual cues that occur during map creation.

Learn more about how to conduct a Net-Map in the KM Tools and Techniques insert in the Building Better Programs Guide.
