This book guides you through the process of gathering knowledge through collaborative mapping, using past research, and program evaluation. The practical mapping technique adds a way to integrate, visualize, and evaluate that knowledge, to support using it for action planning.

As practical researchers and program evaluators, our job is to provide new understandings that inform planning and action. We can think of those understandings as knowledge maps….We wrote this book to provide you with techniques for building better knowledge maps. This way, you can maximize the usefulness of your research and have a greater positive impact on the world. (p. 2)
