News from ICA

Moritz Lennert
Hi everyone,

I've just got feedback from yesterday's meeting of the Belgian section
of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) :

- They cannot support us financially, nor with human resources, but they
would like to disseminate the infos concerning FOSS4G-be amongst their
members with a call for further dissemination within each member's
institution.

- On the basis of an experience at UCL of this April, there is a
proposal to launch an OSM mapathon in support of
http://www.missingmaps.org/. This would take place on one day during the
coming academic year and ideally be a coordinated action in all
universities, inviting students to participate.

I think that we could possibly propose our support to the later in
combination with OSM-be ? I don't know, yet, what this would mean
concretely, but (brainstorming) possibly  a presence of OSGeo-be members
to technically support the action.

Moritz

+1.
Concreteley this probably means that we ask how we can help. This is a
great opportunity to get to know other peer OSGeo-be members :-)

I suggest to discuss this during our meeting next friday. A possible
action could be an OSGeo presentation. About OSGeo, but also about the
relationship of OSGeo and ICA and/or OSM-be.

For OSM-be: the state-of-the-map coming to Brussels next year: we should
definitely promote OSGeo-be; eventually organizing a track about OSGeo /
OSM what are the relationships, how we cross-feed each other, how we can
strengthen the cooperation.
