We invite contributions to the FOSS4G 2015 Seoul Map Gallery to build an exciting and vibrant exhibit of the very best in mapping. This Map Gallery will not only demonstrate the work of delegates but also act as a reference point for the current state of mapping more widely. We encourage all delegates to share one example of their work and help us create a cartographic record of the FOSS4G 2015 conference.
Contributing to the FOSS4G Map Gallery is simple: make a map involving open source technology or open data, and share that map online!
