Call for Map Submissions for Water Themed Atlas

| |

Guerrilla Cartography is seeking maps for its upcoming Water: An Atlas project.  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:

  • Place/Location
  • Management, Control, and Use
  • Consumption
  • Water Rights
  • Pollution
  • Climate/Climate Change
  • Conservation
  • Imagination/Origins/Fantasy

Visit Water: An Atlas for more details about map submission requirements.
