Hi folks, We released a free “Guide to Nonprofit GIS and Online Mapping” PDF this
week, aimed at staff and volunteers of NPOs, NGOs, grassroots groups,
voluntary sector organizations, etc. It’s chock full of cartography for
a good cause, as we say. It’s focused on free and low-cost tools and
data sources, although the data source section is currently very
US-centric. Download at:http://maptogether.org/nonprofit-mapping
* We’re currently seeking feedback on the guide, as well as resources
for free and low-cost data and tools that nonprofit groups outside the
USA might find useful. Please submit your suggestions at:http://maptogether.org/contact
* We have organizations in Canada and Latin America that have expressed
an interest in producing localized versions (Spanish, Portuguese, and
French so far!). If you’re interested in helping review a future
non-English version for accuracy, or if you know of an awesome
neogeo/community mapping project outside the US that should be included,
please email me off-list.

And just for luck, a map2 too is also enroute:
Of course this raises the vital issue, what do you buy a geek to say sorry? Admittedly I was tempted by a years subscription to The Economist. But no.
