The Edinburgh Urban Nature map is here!
Printed on the same press as Ordnance Survey maps, it is a large-format (950
× 1270mm), high-quality, folded map printed with a special Pantone fluorescent ink – custom drawn to highlight all the places to explore on foot or by bike.
A little bit about this map It shows Edinburgh as a city of nature, bringing its green and blue spaces to the fore – its parks, woodlands, playing fields, nature reserves, rivers, and coastline. It incorporates symbols marking places to walk and cycle, take in views, and geodiversity sites. It shows open space rather than roads and buildings.
On the reverse is an atlas of information, graphics, and ideas. How is Edinburgh’s 55% of open space used? How many bee species have been spotted at the Botanic Gardens? Where does an Innertube cycle route take you? What does its geology look like: in plan, section, and timeline? How might you bring ‘five ways to wellbeing’ into your work? What can you do for nature in your garden, on your street, or on your windowsill? Turn your map over and explore!
Urban Nature Edinburgh aims to stimulate us to see the city differently: to think more deeply about the city as a place, and our place in it. It’s a resource to encourage more awareness and more action for people and nature…to help put nearby nature in everyday lives.
