NYC Open Engagement Green Map

Updated! Initiated at Queens Museum Open Engagement 2014

Celebrating the whole of NYC at the Open Engagement festival, this mapping project utilized the famous NYC Panorama at Queens Museum, a giant 3-D map of the city. This workshop was created by Los Hibridos and Green Map NYC in spring 2014, and participants came from all over the world. We all enjoyed exploring the sites at the far ends of the city simply by walking around this "indoor helicopter tour of New York".

Charting the ever-changing environment of New York City since 1992, this was our second time to use the Panorama to showcase Green Map's perspective. #panorama
