Hello everyone,

I spent this week put some final touches on my map and taking the final pictures of Green sites. I have finished the hard copy of my green map, and I will work in the next couple of days to upload it onto the computer. Once that is done, I hope to also include the pictures that I have taken of the green sites into the map. I have also began to organize the pictures that I took this week into a slideshow for the presentation on Friday. I have drafted a short press release for my Green Map, however I am not yet satisfied with it, so I plan to rewrite it and hopefully finish it this week. I will see you all on Friday!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the late update. I was so busy with my work. So far I have finished the map of my school campus. It came out pretty nice. Thanks Andrew and Carlos for helping me installing the greenmap icon fonts. With this tool I am able to evaluate the places in Harlem.

I am really hoping that I can take a trip to Harlem this week when I get a day off. Right now I am aggregating more city blocks surrounding my school campus so the students are able to identify some places that provide good stuff.

Hi everyone!

I did much of my work this week on Open Green Map. Up until this week, I had been slowly adding sites to my OGM, but I spent a lot of time this week adding to my OGM all the sites that are on my Green Map. I also did a little bit more field work this week, taking pictures of the green sites on my map that I will be organizing into a slideshow. I have also begun work on the key for my map. Conveniently, I have typed up many of the descriptions for the sites on my OGM, so it is simply a matter formating them to be used for the map key.
