Dear all,

The 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
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
