Baltimore Green Map is an active partner in the international Green Map® System (GMS). The GMS universal iconography is its signature tool to share green living, ecological, social and cultural resources. More than 850 projects have engaged with GMS, each bringing local knowledge and leadership to the task of capturing the information in its locale. 32,000+ sites worldwide have been entered on the interactive Open Green Map.
The Green Map® icons are being used to chart sustainability at every scale from a neighborhood park to a province. Mapmakers are creating perspective-changing community ‘portraits’ that act as practical guides for residents and tourists, as comprehensive inventories for decision-making, and as benchmarks for measuring progress.
There are garbage maps, energy maps, bicycle maps, heritage preservation maps, and many, many more. There are paper maps and on-line interactive maps, hand-drawn maps and sophisticated, graphically elegant renditions. What do they all have in common? - a concern for the health of our planet and for the preservation and enhancement of unique local resources.
