> Dear Steve,
> First of all, congratulation for the OSM idea. I think this kind of
> project can really change the way people perceive GI around the
> world. I am a french land surveyor installed in Guatemala since 10
> years. I've been working with GI projects in the country and
> recently (vou won't believe me!!!) I've been formulating a
> wikiobservatorio project which look like the OSM idea.
> My point is to create an update cadastral database with fiscal
> values assigned to each parcel, build by people, to fight against
> the land speculation and make information more transparent. I've
> been starting with geoserver tools but as I'm still working on it.
> Well, right now, I will use the OSM solution!!!
> I'm leading a GI asociation in Guatemala to promote the use of GIS
> in the country and the capacity building in this issue. Guatemala
> has a lack of information, and when available, it is used in a
> limited way for decision-making.
> How can we be the referent for a project of OSM in Guatemala?
> Thank you for your answer.
> And congratulation for the idea.
> Jean-Roch Lebeau
