Interesting Online Green Map in Netherlands

There's a really well made online Green Map using the GoogleMap API for a small town in the Netherlands at

It's very fast, easy to use, and their method for switching on and off layers and categories of icons is fantastic. If the folks in Glasgow haven't seen this yet they should definately take a look. Everything's in Dutch though, so I've not found out much about how they built it, though I'll try and email them soon.

Office Outing

Risa at Materials for the Arts

Taking a brief respite from working on the Greenhouse this morning, Wendy, Risa and I took a trip up to Queens to Materials for the Arts to hunt out a few things for the office. Amongst the herd of chairs Risa found this one, so I'm now sitting more comfortably as I code.

Any beta testing problems?

Please contact me (Thomas) and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.

Preparing for beta testing

Beta testing of the new Green Map Greenhouse commences this week, hopefully on Thursday. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Thomas.

Greenhouse under development!

Greetings from the Greenhouse team! We're working hard to set up the Greenhouse. Please pardon our appearance while we do so.

The Greenhouse is the online structure that will
preserve, present and cultivate our local-global work.

When it “goes public” in Spring 2007, the Green Map Greenhouse will utilize increasingly familiar open source content management, mapping, social networking and presentation software to reach and engage hundreds of thousands in sustainable community living around the world.

We'd love your support as we construct the Greenhouse! Click to DONATE or email us at!read more »
