About the Northeast Ohio Green Map
Asset mapping sustainability in Northeast Ohio will help organizations and individuals of all kinds (including non-profit, for-profit, governmental, academic and public) to find one another, connect and collaborate around regional sustainability.
The Open Green Map is an award-winning combination of easy-to-use Google Map technology and 170 universal icons for “green” sites, areas, and routes.
The Northeast Ohio Green Map is joining over 600 green maps created in 55 countries (explore them here) around the world that are identifying the social, environmental, and economic assets and opportunities of their locales. When icons are clicked, photos, descriptions, website links, videos, site relationships, impacts, and contact information can be displayed on these interactive maps.
With this open-source technology (also available as an iPhone App), anyone can search for and suggest sites on the map, adding to the civic participation and ‘live’ communal knowledge of this collaborative project. The map can be housed on any number of different websites, including the Green Maps website—which could improve our region’s reputation nationally and internationally as a place dedicated to sustainability.
