Maps reveal important information.  They visually represent data better than data sheets or lists.  NYC Digital recently published an assortment of New York City digital maps, displaying various green data across the city.  MarketMAPS  takes a look at these digital maps and what kind of information they reveal. 

 

NYC Digital is part of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, created by Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Katherine Oliver in July 2010.  Their goal is to realize New York City’s potential as the world’s leading digital city.  Recently, the mayor’s office and NYC Digital launched the Reinvent Green Hackathon, an event that called on the expertise of tech wizards to create digital tools and applications that support New Yorkers in leading greener, greater lives.

One of the results of the Hackathon is an assortment of digital maps of New York, displaying various green data such as number of trees within a certain area, number of parks, energy consumption by ZIP Code, and much more.
