World Environment Day on Google Maps

Open Green Map Launch
The Open Green Map social mapping platform is using World Environment Day to announce their global launch. We have featured many environmentally themed maps created on the Open Green Map platform on Google Maps Mania and with their worldwide launch we hope to see many more!

Cape Town Green Map

The Cape Town Green Map is a Google Maps mashup of the city's green spaces, nature reserves, organic eateries, farmers' markets, recycling drop-offs, sustainable living projects and eco products. The map was created with the Open Green Map platform and is being released today, also to celebrate World Environment Day.

Clicking on the larger map option opens the map in a lightbox type window. The larger version of the map allows the user to select the category of markers to view on the map from, 'sustainable living', 'nature' and 'culture and society'.
