The interactive, cloud-based, open-data mapping platform, food system first launched in 2012 and plots production, distribution, processing and consumption within Maryland's food system across 175 data layers. Recently, the Johns Hopkins team updated map functionality. Much of the data comes from federal, state and local databases like the those operated by Maryland's departments of Environment and Health and Mental Hygiene and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's census. A data layer of food banks comes from nonprofit Maryland Food Bank, while one of farms selling locally was compiled by the project from multiple sources.
