Dear all, 

We're having a Missing Maps party in the Netherlands this Saturday.
At least 35 participents, and among them both a large number of people from
the Dutch and Flemish OSGeo community.

We'll bring your proposal to attention on that occasion, and inform you
about the respons.
Personally I'm attracted by the concept of Open Aerial Map; contacts with
larger (not necessarily OSGeo) companies and organisation who are involved
in geospatial projects in Africa and Asia might be of interest for this

Any additional information on the topics will be helpful. Especially on the
three topics "HOT/OSM version of OSgeoLive, "map rendering based on HOT data
model" and "mobile field application"

Greetings from the Lowlands,

chairman of OSgeo.nl, the Dutch Local Chapter

Hello Cristiano, all,

we are currently sorting out details of OSGeo application for GSoC, and I
definitely welcome collaboration with HOT team over the topics you listed.
Once OSGeo applies and we get the results of Google selection, we can set up
a wiki page with shared ideas.

All the best for HOT team for its first GSoC!

Kind regards,
