Community Mapping

YOUR INVITATION TO MAP YOUR 2- 5 KM WALK OR CYCLE ROUTE IS HERE: https://dublintrees.files.wordpress.com/2020/05/plots1.pdf

PLOTS : Creating co-ordinates for collective futures. 

Your PLOTS Map will form an integral part of our Dublin community atlas, building a picture of our valuable public green infrastructure across Dublin. Let’s work together to make our city bike and pedestrian friendly and give everyone fair access to green space.  

You can create your map in two ways: 

  • Use My Map app on your phone and share. 
  • Draw and then photograph your map and share.  

Plot ways your neighbourhood could be improved.

Plot  interesting things you see, feel, hear or smell  

Plot new things you have discovered

Plot changes you may have noticed eg traffic, pollution and noise

Your map will be shared as part of Mapping Green Dublin research to create a greening strategy for Dublin. All maps are anonymised unless you give us permission to share your information. Data will not be shared and is only used for this project. 

PLOTS creates an active site of communal mapping, exploration and gathering. It acts as part of the research programme for Mapping Green Dublin. Combining the tools of geographical field work and mapping with artistic walking and drawing methodologies participants collectively and playfully create a deep mapping of Dublin City. 

WE LOOK FORWARD TO RECEIVING YOUR MAPS AND HOPE YOU ENJOY MAKING THEM share your map : mappinggreendublin(@)gmail.com

“I made a map of all the places I went in my 2km world. I know there’s Google maps, but this one is made the old school way – photocopier, markets and glue!” Kate Horgan, Bespoke Books.
