“Territory is the socially built space”, with this sentence starts the excellent “Collective mapping tutorial. Critical mapping resources for shared mapping ” in Spanish, by Iconoclasistas (there’s another tutorial in English, with license CC BY-SA 2.0 – Creative Commons, called Collective mapping).
In this tutorial, with licence Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike 2.5, we find a symbology orientated to be used at the collective mapping workshops. Symbology which is not the usual representation of geographical elements to add an iconography for ideological representations.
And although originally the symbology was created to be used in a more crafty way in the different workshops, we think that is really interesting to have it in a opensource GIS and that gvSIG could be a tool to do this type of collective mapping jobs and the analysis of our social reality.
For all these reasons, we want to add to the comunity the new add-on for gvSIG 2.1, which is just a symbol library for collective mapping.
We hope that you like it.
Here is a video showing how to install this library (as usual, from add-ons administrator):
