This is a list of Transistion Towns in the OpenStreeMap project. See the transition town page for a definition of what a transition town is.

Transition Mapping

An excellent example of what can be achieved is illustrated on this Sustainable London Map. Tom Chance has developed an excellent themed website that could be used by all transition communities.

What to Map

A selection of ideas of what to map may be found on the Transition town page. See the mapping for transition section. There are many features that may be of interest to the transition movement that relate to energy, transport and local facilities. See the Environmental_OSM page for details of environmental mapping.
