Cuba's Story ‘04 describes the development of Green Mapmaking in both rural and urban communities in Cuba. In 2004, the nation had Green Map projects throughout 11 of its 14 provinces, with 75 projects underway! The overview features some of thematic Green Maps created across Cuba. It also includes examples of geographically specific local icons, and “beyond the map” spin-offs from the Green Map projects, such as documentaries and their own Mapas Verde Cuba Manual. Available in Spanish, too. A video about this project is available in our Store in the DVD section. 2008 Update: there are now 113 Green Map projects in Cuba!

Authors: Mapas Verde Pan Americas Network, special thanks to Mapmakers Liana Bidart Cisneros of Havana Cuba and Maeve Lydon of Victoria, Canada 2004.
