Planetizen is a super-cool resource for planning geeks. This week, they sent out a list of their top ten websites of the year. Sadly, The Green Workplace didn’t make it, but some other really good ones did. Here are a couple of my favorites in the green category and an excerpt of Planetizen’s description:
NYC/London Interactive Transit Map: These two web tools by software developer Gregory J. Brail combine transit data and Google Maps to create the easiest way yet to figure out how to get somewhere using public transit (at least in New York and London). By simply clicking (or typing in the address) of your starting point and destination, these interactive transit maps instantly plot the shortest travel route using each city's underground metro.
Post Carbon Cities: Post Carbon Cities has taken up the challenge of helping local governments understand and respond to the challenges of peak oil and global warming by bringing together a valuable set of resources on energy and climate change. The site's weekly blog provides overviews and advice on topics such as green building and transit-oriented development.
Walk Score also made the list. Refer to Greenette’s previous post on this resource.
