The DCH Built Environment Assessment Tool (BE Tool) (an adaptation of MAPS) was developed by ICF International through contract No: 200-2007-22643-0003 with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Community Health. The BE
Tool incorporates many questions from the MAPS tool, and the data scoring and analysis system for the BE Tool is designed to fit within the MAPS scoring structure so that the tools produce comparable data. The BE Tool Manual also incorporates many ideas from the MAPS manual on field rater training, procedures, and guidance, in addition to building on the MAPS scoring system, and we would like to thank the MAPS team for their contributions to the BE Tool.
