We need a slogan/motto to go along with the new logo. There will need to be several different ways of using, so we will likely need a few different ones. We'll need something to follow after the shorter "OSGeo" nickname. And also something to follow the longer title: "Open Source Geospatial Foundation". See if you can avoid any words already in the title.

Please submit your possible mottos here:

  1. Your Open Source Compass (was part of Aaron's logo submission)
  2. Compass to the Open Source GeoSpatial World (building on above)
  3. "It's a spheroid, get over it."
  4. Open ways
  5. Open destinations (too airliner-ish, i think)
  6. Open directions
  7. Enabling Geo-Power
  8. Pure Mapping Power
  9. Great Mapping Tools
  10. Projecting Worlds
  11. Find it with the tools from the foundation
  12. Open the source and find your way
  13. OSGeo -- Where it's at
  14. OSGeo shows you to the open source
  15. Spatialize your mind (Using an invented word could be useful in creating a stronger brand, similar to the use of Mc for all Mc Donalds McProducts)

  17. The open place people
  18. Putting GeoSpace at work for you
