Hi Jon,

First, my apologies for slow response  as was juggling many work here :)  GeoBadges is an excellent idea http://www.geobadges.org/  and thanks for making this possible. This is of interest to Geo4All and will help us  recognise (and say thank you ) to our excellent volunteers (both educators and students) for thier contributions.

Not sure why you were not able to post to OSGeo list, you just need to subscribe at http://lists.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/ica-osgeo-labs  Anyway i am now ccing to the OSGeo lists, so those interested to contribute to GeoBadges efforts can join in.

All - we welcome volunteers to make use of this initiative to work with Jon and Selene  to help build a roadmap for GeoBadges for the Geo4All community. Please let us know if you are interested before 30th Jan and we can then arrange a google hangout with all interested in Feb so Jon can explain us details and  go through the model  and plan next steps.

Best wishes,

Hi Alex and Suchith,

I don't have permission to write to the OSGeo list, so reaching out to ya'll. Feel free to share.

I've been working with AGS to get GeoBadges.org, on the side of my day job at MapStory.org

I know I/they would love to work with you to onboard you as an Issuer Organization of GeoBadges.

The first step is setting up a google hangout where we can walk through the model. Then you and your team can begin constructing the badges themselves. Some of the initial ideas you shared sound pretty good!

I know AGS is also looking for supporting Sponsors to help improve and grow the platform, so if anyone comes to mind on that front I'm sure AGS would appreciate as well.

Happy holidays to all,
