I guess some of you already know http://www.openstreetmap.org
where we create a digital map of the world in a wiki style.
For February next year we plan a global mapping party (well just tracing imageries around the clock),
that gave the funny name "night of the living maps"
Unfortunately the one who wanted to create the design, is run into troubles and I'm not an artist
So can anybody of you please help us? Sadly we have no money, but maybe we can spot a focus on the places where you live and improve the map? But that's something I can't promise, as this is a democracy and not a dictatorship
So as you assume, we don't take the thing to seriously. Of course it's name is derived from "night of the living deads", as the 7.February has full moon and computing ~8hrs in front of the screen makes you looking scary.
If I had a wish, I would like to have some cute 'geek zombies
', that are somewhat related to creating a map. Maybe a style like happy tree friends
or Mr. Saladfingers
would be cool. Just some ideas for scenery:
-one zombie sitting in front of a pc screen (displays a map of course)
-one zombie drawing a map on a desktop (maybe with a circle or compass?)
-a zombie knees on the ground to draw on a giant map role
-2 zombies put a map on a wall and a third one paints on it (maybe map titled "Night of the living maps")
-one zombie follows a virtual GPS track carrying a GPS receiver
But this are just my own ideas, you are completely free, just keep in mind that we need it for avatars (social networks), banners and flyers of course. So please not to much details, but cute looking
I would be very happy if anybody would give it a try, as this is currently a big problem for us...
