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 nearly 500 interactive maps.

Now, OGM has technical limitations, and while it is still in use, we are encouraging Green Map Makers to transition to a more durable mapping platform.

There are great options! Reviewing in light of our network’s differing needs, we are transitioning from our own social mapping platform toward what we are calling ‘platform diversity’. Below, find tutorials!

You can review the mapping platform Matrix and choose the option fits your skills and aims:


Check out the tutorials we developed with CARTO, Google My Maps, Esri ArcGIS (there are more to come - please let us know if you want to add one). 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 Green Map Icons with other platforms and applications too. Find details 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!
