Greenroofs.com Interactive Projects Database Google Map
The Projects Database landing page is the second most visited page of our website, after the Homepage. Our goal here is to easily display our comprehensive body of global projects searchable by type, date of completion, geographic location, designer, manufacturer, etc. There are currently over 1,750 projects worldwide in the database, with more added everyday.
And now we’ve added a new, interactive map displaying all the Greenroofs.com Projects Database case studies using the most powerful map engine – Google Maps.
“Google Maps is a Web-based service that provides detailed information about geographical regions and sites around the world. In addition to conventional road maps, Google Maps offers aerial and satellite views of many places. In some cities, Google Maps offers street views comprising photographs taken from vehicles.” – Wikipedia
Following is the circular pin color legend corresponding to the number of Projects existing in the Greenroofs.com Database for that particular location on the map. As you zoom in, the pin colors will change accordingly:
- Orange – more than 100 projects
- Olive Green – 11 to 99 projects
- Teal – 2 to 10 projects
- Red – One project
Once you get down to a Red pin, then you can click it to open a separate dialog box that will display a “View Profile” button that will allow you to read more information about this particular project.
The symbols on the right side of the map represent the different functions. Hover to read, click to activate.
You can toggle between Map and Satellite views, as follows:

“Each Project Profile in the Greenroofs.com Projects Database is a unique searchable page, indexed by all of the search engines. Meant as the ultimate living repository of project information, the Project Profile is designed as a living research document and can be updated at any time.”
