Hi Christian,
This member map is great. One of the limitations I've noted with the 
OSGeo Advocacy page [1] with that it included your old map, but wasn't 
able to be updated.

With the ability to now collect and display structured data, I'd suggest 
that it would be worth re-visiting our OSGeo Advocacy page, and moving 
the current free text descriptions of people into structured data, would 
could then be aggregated into different portals, as you suggest.

How would you suggest we approach this?
OSGeo Advocates for the most part have entered structured data about 
themselves, based on the guidelines provided, which is reasonably

(This page seems to be down, throwing a 500 error. Might be due to new 
wiki not able to use page include statements correctly)
