WELCOME TO OGM2
OGM2 is Green Map System's second Open Green Map platform. Designed for community mapping, this open source 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.
OGM2 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, for example, our Recovery Icons (created in response to the Pandemic) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, along with customized sets for specific localities.

Tutorials in video and text formats are on the About page, along with Demos and Presentations (including upcoming announcements) - find a list of OGM2's Advantages there too. This platform is versatile and includes all the data from the original OGM platform, which is gradually being updated by mapmakers. There are dozens of brand-new Green Maps to explore too - start on the Browse page!
Wendy Brawer and all of Green Map System thank Bogdan Szabo and Alexandra Casapu, the open source development GISCollective for their great open work on OGM2 - progress is updated here and expanded upon on in their Blog with more technical information. We are grateful to all the Green Mapmakers whose experience contributes to this platform's continual progress. Thanks to Ciprian Samoila for support of our organization's website of stories and mapping resources, too!
Today is a great day to start making your first Green Map!
