Based in New York, the people behind the Green Atlas have been going "green" since 1995. The Green Map system is an "adaptable framework for charting nature and culture in hometown environments." Recently, they published the Green Map Atlas, and now visitors can access the entire publication on this site. The Atlas includes maps of Jakarta, Kyoto, New York, Milwaukee, Toronto, and six other areas around the world. Visitors will find all types of interesting information on each of these maps, including the locations of community gardens, green spaces, bike trails, and other environmentally-friendly aspects of the built environment. It's certainly a novel and new way to think about communities, and these maps could also be used in courses on environmental science or urban planning.
