OGM2 is <a href="http://GreenMap.org">Green Map System</a>'s second Open Green Map platform. Designed for community mapping, this platform is ready for all kinds of mapmakers - from students to professionals - who want to draw attention to sustainability in their own city or town.
OGM2 includes the original set of 170 <a href="https://new.opengreenmap.org/browse/icons/5ca7b702ecd8490100cab96f">Green Map Icons</a> for charting nature, culture, social justice and sustainable living resources. An open source platform, OGM2 allows for new icon sets, including our 2020 <a href="https://new.opengreenmap.org/browse/icons/5ebc501bf885d601004b69ec">Recovery Icons</a>, the <a href="https://new.opengreenmap.org/browse/icons/5d49a92ef716120100c5d85e">UN SDGs</a> and more. Mapmakers can add customized icon sets for specific localities, and custom base maps, too. <br><br>Ready to explore? Start with Browse or explore the world view map from Home. There are several new maps, and some that include pre-2020 data from the original OGM platform.
