About this Mapmaker

This map is made by a group of undergraduate students taking URSP 250, The Sustainable City, at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Statement of Purpose

After individually calculating their Ecological Footprints and analyzing their scores, the students in URSP 250 wanted to know how to make more sustainable lifestyle choices in their community. They wondered: where are the resources and assets in Prince George's County, Maryland? This question revealed the need for a comprehensive guide to sustainability-related resources in the area.

In this Green Map, they utilize the three pillars of sustainability (Environment, Economy, and Equity) to identify and map resources in Prince George's County. This map is intended to be a resource for residents as well as UMD students, staff, and faculty. Prince George's County has an area of 499 square miles, and with a population of nearly 900,000 residents, it is the second largest county in all of Maryland. The hope is that by providing a guide to sustainability-related resources in the area, this green map will have a positive effect on the lifestyle choices of many of those residents.
