Our award-winning mapping platform, the ‘Open Green Map’ debuted in 2009. Since then, Green Map Makers from over 40 countries have used OGM to publish 500 interactive maps.

Now, OGM2 is coming into use! See it at new.opengreenmap.org - today, both new and exisiting mapmakers can make maps on it! Our thanks to the GIS Collective for developing this  dynamic mapping platform. There is a Tutorial linked to the Sign In page to help you get started. It's a terrific resource, even it its current stage, and will continue to improve with use.

Since we were between platforms, we reviewed our network’s differing needs, and worked with several that could include our icons. There is page for each linked below, with tutorials that include how to add Green Map Icons to each one.

If you opt not to use OGM2, please review this mapping platform Matrix and choose the option fits your skills and aims:


Check out the tutorials we developed with CARTO, Google My Maps, Esri Story Map, Google Earth, the social platform-in-development Map of Tomorrow - Karte von Morgen, and our own Open Green Map, and more to come. Each has information for new Map Makers as well as for exporting existing data from OGM. These robust mapping platforms can incorporate various formats, including open data feeds from local governments and other providers, and can therefore help build your local partnerships and network development. You can use the now open-source Green Map Icons with other platforms and applications too, as noted here.

Your Green Map Project is important to your local community as well as the world. Let’s help make our home planet a better world. Think global, map local!
