Fresh Spring News from Green Map

Hola LES, a Green Map of the Future in many ways!
Hola LES, a Green Map of the Future in many ways!

It’s the first day of spring, and a few blossoms herald welcome relief from winter’s grey chill. Regardless, 2016 has already provided a season for progress for Green Map System.

A retreat with our board of directors was especially satisfying as we consider practical ways to address current conditions, and meet our mission of supporting changing communities. We are always grateful for your donations that make it possible for us to welcome new projects on a continual basis, including most recently from Alaska’s Tanana Valley Watershed to Savannah Georgia, Natal Brazil to Madrid Spain, and beyond!

Our own mapping platform has been an important tool for hundreds of communities over the years, but today, with so many great mapping platforms alternatives available, this year, we are making test maps and exploring options. Check out our newest NYC Green Map, Hola LES, which is made on the CartoDB mapping platform. It’s embedded into the story of how it was made, which involved dozens of community members who joined us in considering the future of one neighborhood. Explore the map online, and if you are in NYC on May 7, join us for our Jane’s Walk, commemorating the 100th birthday of this activist who championed new community-based approaches to planning.

The season, our own Green Maps are on view in Women in Cartography exhibit at the Boston Public Library. With Earth Day just around the corner, Green Mapmakers will be taking part in events worldwide. Watch #GreenMap on Twitter to find out where to get involved! We hope you will make this spring one of action and for you and your community.
