The cool folks over at Tactical Technology Collective recently revised their fantasticguide to using mapping and GIS for advocacy functions. In addition to an overview of GIS, the guide also includes interesting case studies of GIS advocacy projects from around the world. Definitely a must-read for those in advocacy and related practices in the nonprofit sector!
We're very pleased to announce that MapTogether.org's proposed nonprofit mapping session - "Maptivism: GIS for the People!" - has been selected for presentation at this year's Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial Conference to be held in Sydney, Australia this October. FOSS4G is the annual international conference for developers and implementers of Free/Open Source GIS Software, and this is a great opportunity to share the awesome neogeography work our communities are doing with the global GIS/mapping development community!
