Hi Jo and others on Geodata list...

I'm working on the flyers/brochures for the OSGeo Geodata project and need 
information (noted below) for them.  I am aiming to wrap this up this week 
hopefully, so that you can then have a chance to review the product for any 
changes before Where 2.0.  This will pretty much serve as an ad for attendees 
to pick up, so now is your chance to get the vision out there :)

Let me know if you can't get me stuff in the next couple of days.

Greetings, sorry for the bulk email...

The OSGeo Promotion and Visibility Committee has several great opportunities
to promote OSGeo projects at the Where 2.0 conference
(http://conferences.oreilly.com/where). It's coming fast and furious and we
need your help.

We want to put together a set of documents that describe your project
 (GeoData Committee), that we can distribute as pamphlets at the conference.
 These will be good to have on file for other events too.

Arnulf and his gang did something like this for posters at Linuxtag (but all
in German :). We want to take a similar approach by using a common layout and

What we need:
-2 or 3 graphics, screenshots or images that represent your project
-100-150 words describing the project
-5-10 bullets listing the 'core features' of your project
-the main URL your project uses (osgeo.org-based one preferred)

We will put your info into our template and then let you review it to make
sure it is something you can be proud of.

If you already have documents or brochures showing similar information,
 please direct me to it.

Thank you,

p.s. GeoData, Education and Incubator committees should also contribute
something to help lay out the great work we're doing (are planning to do) in
those committees.
