Indiana LEED Certified Projects Visualized through Google Maps

One of my responsibilities with the Indiana Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC-IN) is to maintain a Google Maps database of all LEED certified projects in Indiana. Currently, the database is restricted to “commercial” LEED projects – i.e. project certified under any version of LEED except for LEED for Homes.

Indiana LEED Certified Projects Google Maps Database (as of March 20, 2011): Certified = Green; Silver = Cyan; Gold = Yellow; Platinum = Purple

I updated the Google Maps database this weekend and made the following observations (keep in mind that all of these figures exclude LEED for Homes projects):

  • There are currently 260 projects registered in Indiana. Of which, 74 (or 28.5%) are certified.
  • Franklin Street Properties’ 3815 & 3925 River Crossing Parkway remains the only project in the state certified under LEED for Existing Buildings (EB O&M Silver).
  • Earlier this month, the New Clark Middle School in Vincennes became the state’s first project certified under LEED for Schools (v2.0 Silver).

USGBC-IN intends to eventually link the Google Maps database to USGBC-IN.org. Until then, please feel free to access the database directly at http://bit.ly/fH8T1A.
