WELCOME TO OGM2
The versatile Green Map Platform, also known as Open Green Map (OGM) is created by the terrific team at the GISCollective, for and with Green Map System. Progress is continually updated here. It’s expanded upon in their Blog and their technical updates. We are grateful to all the Green Mapmakers whose experience and vision contribute greatly to this platform's continual progress.
