Information for asset mapping is gathered from five primary sources: existing knowledge of project participants, previous regional reports, public data, surveys, and interviews. These last three sources are particularly relevant to comprehensive asset mapping projects. The asset mapping team needs to be creative in using resources available to them and in determining if there are additional region-specific metrics that should be included.
