Dear all,

TheFOSS4G.be <http://2017.foss4g.be/>is an annual conference focused on 
open source geospatial software. This year, the event will be held on 
*October 26 at Tour and Taxi (Brussels)*.

As a geospatial conference, maps should certainly be a part of it! 
That's why we decided to organise a Map Gallery exhibit: We invite 
contributions to the FOSS4G Map Gallery in order to create an exciting 
and vibrant exhibit of the very best in mapping. Contributing to the 
FOSS4G.be Map Gallery is simple: make a map involving at least open 
source technology or open data.

Your map can be the result of a commercial venture or a personal challenge.

We encourage all attendees to submit their work on paper (maximumsize 
A1). If you are unable to print your map you can send it by e-mail (see 
instuctions below). Interactive maps are welcome as well (please provide 
us with an URL).

You will also be asked to provide us with a short description of your 
map and possibly a brief statement of the methods, software and data you 
used in your map design and production.

To make it simple, the two criteria's for submitting your work are :

  * The Map must have been created in 2016-2017
  * At least one step of the production process must have been achieved
    using open source technology or open data.

We invite all users, inventors or map creators from anywhere in Belgium 
or elsewhere to contribute to what will surely be an amazing Map Gallery.

    On-Site Submission Guidelines

E-mail map at foss4g.be (*before October 22*) and tell us to reserve a 
space in the gallery for you. Bring a paper copy of your map with you to 
the conference to hang in the gallery. The gallery map boards 
accommodate A1 paper maps. Larger maps are not allowed.

    Online Submission Guidelines

Submit your map*by October 8*via e-mail (map at foss4g.be).

Maps submitted online must meet the following criteria:

  * Must be in .pdf format only (Include all fonts or convert to outlines.)
  * Minimum resolution: 2342 x 3311 pixels (we’ll print the maps in A1)

If you made a interactive map, please provide us with the URL.
