Maps for development communication often privilege the global north and authorize (neo)colonialism. We believe that alternative cartography is possible. This paper examines community mapping performed as part of a service-learning initiative that incorporates asset-based community development. We articulate how maps use and challenge assumptions of colonial and imperial science.
