Hello, I am in the process of developing a Green Map project for Glasgow.

The project aims to make Glasgow a more sustainable city through the
creation of a locally focused web based Green Map and a series of
thematic paper based maps on issues such as recycling and reuse,
transport, food......

Green Maps are locally created maps that chart the social, cultural and
environmental resources using the Green Map Icon system.

This is an example of a web based Google Mash up Green Map of Cork

I wondered if there was anyone who would be interested in creating a similar resource for Glasgow as a pilot project?

Also, for market research purposes, I would really appreciate it if you could
take 5 mins to answer the 6 questions below and return to hannah at radiusglasgow.org
