Greenroofs.com publishes a new interactive database of Google Map projects

From green roof to green walls, building and sustainable landscapes, we cover the environmentally friendly technologies of living green infrastructure, low impact development and associated sustainable energies.

Greenroofs.com Interactive database of Google Map projects
The Project Database Landing Page is the second most visited page on our website, after the home page. Our goal here is to easily display our complete set of global projects searchable by type, date of completion, geographic location, designer, manufacturer, and more. There are currently more than 1750 projects worldwide in the database, with more every day.
And now we’ve added a new interactive map showing all the case studies from the Greenroofs.com project database using the most powerful mapping engine – Google Maps.
âGoogle Maps is a web service that provides detailed information about geographic regions and sites around the world. In addition to classic road maps, Google Maps offers aerial and satellite views of many places. In some cities, Google Maps offers street views that include photographs taken from vehicles. “ – Wikipedia
Here is the legend of the circular pin colors corresponding to the number of projects existing in the Greenroofs.com database for that particular location on the map. As you zoom in, the colors of the pins change accordingly:
- Orange – more than 100 projects
- Green olive – 11 to 99 projects
- Teal – 2 to 10 projects
- Red – A project
Once you get down to a Red pin, you can click on it to open a separate dialog that will display a “View Profile” button that will allow you to read more information about that particular project.
The symbols on the right side of the card represent the different functions. Hover to read, click to activate.
You can switch between Map and Satellite views, as follows:
