A website to collaboratively map and inventory urban agriculture and community gardens in Chicago.

More about this project

The Chicago Urban Agriculture Mapping Project (CUAMP) is an ongoing collaboration between individuals, organizations, businesses and institutions that has sought to collaboratively map and inventory urban agriculture and community gardens in Chicago since 2010.

It includes everything from small residential gardens to commercial urban farms. With an interactive map and directory that link to detailed profiles for each growing site, CUAMP aims to provide the public with a comprehensive and constantly evolving look at the state of urban agriculture in Chicagoland. The administration team currently consists of NeighborSpace, Advocates for Urban Agriculture, and DePaul University’s Irwin W. Steans Center.

DataMade redesigned website map using our open source Carto Template. The data is managed via a Google Spreadsheet that is automatically synced on a regular basis. New entries are submitted via a Google Form, which are then reviewed and added to the source spreadsheet.
