Guerrilla Cartography is seeking maps for its upcoming Water: An Atlasproject. If the name sounds familiar, this organization had previously published the well-received crowdsourced cartographic endeavor, Food: An Atlas.
After a first round of submission, the editorial board at Guerrilla Cartography is seeking additional water-themed maps to round out gaps in the atlas. Submission are being accepted until October 31, 2016 and Water: An Atlas will have a publication date sometime in late Spring, 2017.
While maps are being accepted from all regions of the world, Guerrilla Cartography is “especially seeking maps from and about non-Western areas of the world (i.e. places in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific Islands).”
From the Call for Maps page:
We seek contributions of maps and ideas that tell a story based on solid data from current or recent research (including historical data and investigation), with an emphasis in the following subjects, themes, and locations:
- Management, Control, and Use
- Water Rights
- Climate/Climate Change
