The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

A GIS Map Making Guide for Neighborhood Organizations and other Community-based Groups in Northeast Minneapolis.

Peterson, Andrea.

Maps create effective visuals to display different neighborhood characteristics. A series of maps have been created for the Bottineau neighborhood as part of the Northeast Futures Project. This manual includes recommended base and overlay maps and the purpose for each map, the GIS data needed, and whether the map is easy or hard to create. It is hoped that through the creation of this guide and having piloted GIS map-making by neighborhood custom design with the Bottineau Neighborhood Association in Northeast Minneapolis that other Northeast neighborhood organizations and community-based groups will realize the potential of GIS maps.
