The Grassroots Mapping Forum is a printed map publication which we are hoping to eventually publish once every month. It is printed on a 22.75x35" sheet, folded down to just over letter size, and includes a full color reproduction of a grassroots map along with essays, illustrated guides, and interviews on the reverse.

We imagine the Forum as a two-way publication- the full-color map is complemented by a cyan-colored map on the reverse side, ready to be marked up with new details about the site, mailed back to the Public Laboratory team, digitized, and included in the online map. This is community cartography, and we look forward to working with you!
