Updates

WELCOME TO OGM2

This is version 2 of Green Map System's 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 resources and needs in their own city or town. It includes the original set of Green Map Icons for charting nature, culture, social justice and sustainable living resources. OGM2 allows for new icon sets to be added, and we recently added Green Map's Recovery Icons (created in response to the Pandemic) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, along with customized sets for specific localities.

OGM2 is versatile, and allows import and export of data. It has all the sites uploaded to the original OGM platform between 2009-2019, and while existing mapmakers are gradually reviewing and updating, there are several brand-new Open Green Maps to explore. Start by Browsing or explore the world view map. Or create a new account (it's free) at the Sign In and get your own map rolling!

Much more about the mapping process and our icons is at GreenMap.org.

Our thanks to Ciprian Samoila and the GISCollective team of Bogdan Szabo, Alexandra Casapu and their great open work!
