ABOUT

Green Map System sparks and supports social change through maps and mapmaking resources.

As part of our process, we also produce workshops, events, tours and multimedia, often in partnerships that engage community and extend our impacts. Active in NYC’s ‘green space’ for 20 years, we endeavor to include everyone in making this amazing environment a better place for all.

Our nonprofit organization has a vitally important mission: inclusive participation in sustainable community development. Today our mapmaking movement has spread to 65 countries!

Full spectrum Green Maps illuminate the rich environment of NYC.
