OGM in Continual Development!

More features on the Open Green Map social mapping platform are in development! This page highlights the new elements in the works.

Public participation resources. Each site on the map has an expanded 'info window' where you can share your comments, ratings and impact assessments by clicking tabs. At Multimedia, you can share your videos, images and PDFs about the sites as well. Or, suggest a new site! Questions? The FAQ linked above has the answers! Click Share & Promote above for a wide range of participation and presentation resources for youth, community, civic and media. More involvement features will be added soon!

Widgets. Find a basic version of the widget on the Share and Promote page. Soon you'll be able to embed a variety of 'portable' Open Green Maps in any website, blog or email.

Data management. Now, all Green Mapmakers can export content from this platform to create great printed Green Maps and related digital, curriculum and community building resources. Data import is being tested, to benefit those who have amassed site data offiline or in other formats. If you want to download inspiring, beautifully designed locally-published Green Map editions now, many are linked in the Info Tab alongside each map with the Profile. Find even more in the Maps section at GreenMap.org.

Take Green Map with You: Mobile phones and other data sharing. Beta tools are available today! Simply type GreenMap.org into your cell phone's internet browser and get the iPhone App by searching Green Map in the Apple Store or click GreenMap.org/app. We'd love to hear your ideas about expanding our mobile capacity.

Translated interfaces. Access the first interface languages on the upper left. Use the Google Translate menu on pages without maps. While any language can be added to any site's info windows and map information, the translation of the overall website takes a special template and dedicated effort! Please let us know if you can help.

Media and Outreach resources. Visit our Share and Promote page for resources from digital banners to Open Green Map parties to youth mapping guidance. There are many different tools for getting involved and more coming soon! A slideshow and video are below, too.

Support Open Green Map. Your support is greatly appreciated! Contribute by clicking Donate on the bottom line of any page. We welcome new sponsors, volunteers and your ideas, as well.
