UW-Madison Grad Students Produce Local Food Map

May 30, 2008 | Blog

Yet another connection between education and sustainable local agriculture… and it features two of my favorite things: food and maps.

Four University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate students in geography have produced what they call the “100-Mile Diet Map”. It is an interactive, web-based map that features foods produced within 100 miles of Madison, Wisconsin. It also includes businesses such as farms, co-ops, supermarkets, restaurants, and breweries.

Their project is written about in a story posted on The Capital Times web site as well as by UW-Madison News.

You can also view an initial public version of the map here.
