The Maryland Food System Map is a free, easy-to-use mapping application incorporating data available for download on the food system, public health and the environment. Data are collected from government databases, partnerships with organizations and through primary data collection and compilation.

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future developed the first version of the mapping application in 2012 with 30 data indicators. Since then, the technology has been updated and the number of data indicators has increased to about 150. Download this Data Documentation file to learn more about the data layers available on the mapping application and their sources.

Explore the tool for inspiration, create your own map for funding or advocacy, or download data for your own research and planning. For more information on how to use the mapping application, see “Getting Started”.
