Updating the Green Map Icons
It's time to co-create Version 3 of the world's only universal symbol system for maps. The process began at our first global Green Mapmakers meeting, where we realized we needed a carefully-crafted, inclusive process. Interim discussions took place in many locales, culminating in development of this website.
Our goal is to give every Green Map project a voice in the updating process. Thanks for taking part. Think global!
(If you are not a registered Green Mapmaker and have suggestions or questions, please contact us). A bit more about the March 2007 voting is here.
Voting Process - MARCH 2007
We’re pleased to announce Phase 3 of Icon Update is now underway! Please participate in March! Voting will end March 31. Your votes and comments will advise the completion of the set. Later, once we have refined the set again with your Phase 3 input, you will be asked to vote again.
Your votes and comments will advise the completion of the set. Later, once we have refined the set again with your Phase 3 input, you will be asked to vote again.
There are 2 ways to vote, but each Mapmaking project should only vote one time. Click and Vote for the design you like for each option, either online at Green Map Icons Version 3 or on a spreadsheet. We think this can be done in less than 30 minutes.
The spreadsheet shows the full set and options created after Phase 2 input was reviewed. It’s a good resource for you, even if you are planning to vote online. In Excel, you can change the viewing size to guage how well they scale down or up.
Since the website collects the outcomes automatically, we prefer that you vote online.
Start voting online at Green Map Icons Version 3. You may also download this Excel spreadsheet and follow the instructions included in the document. You can vote on it, save and send to email@example.com by March 31!
