This is heat map of North Beacon Hill was made using the data from 10 maps drawn from members of the North Beacon Hill community using the mental mapping style.

Process: My process was to find all of the physical locations associated with the features described in the 10 mental maps, and create a shapefile containing all of the features as points. Using this data I created my heat map to locate the clusters of features noted in the mental maps.
Conclusion: Most of the features noted by the 10 participants were centralized around the business hub which included amenities like the Link Light Rail, Library, Red Apple Market, and nearby green spaces.
