Asset mapping was the most important methodological tool used in the Creative Citizens project. The history and best practice of this technique, is described, along with its adaptation to this project. Initially understood as a tool for capturing the values that drive creative civic actions and the value thereby generated, here the technique is applied for the dual purpose of supporting research and facilitating collaborative creation, with a focus on intangible assets such as knowledge, capabilities and skills, as well as social and cultural relationships. This approach innovated by examining the value of media assets in community and personal asset maps. We concluded that intangible assets around people, groups and organisations are the main carriers of untapped potential.
