During a CAP process, it can be useful to produce maps that show areas where viability or conservation status is better and less well off.

These maps can be generated by GIS staff by analyzing land-use information, monitoring data, etc. or can be generated in a workshop by participants who draw polygons based on their perceptions (and by using key ecological attributes as a reference for targets represented within an area).
 
These PowerPoint slides present an example of such a map and the type of information that can be shown on the map.
