We have created a Crowdmap to leverage the contributions of people worldwide who are helping bring the GVCS to completion. The point of the Crowdmap is to create a repository of information – collected via micro-contributions of content from people worldwide – which can subsequently be mined by GVCS project developers for useful development support. We encourage this to be used as a dumping ground of potentially relevant information – which can then be refined and filtered.
The focus of the Crowdmap is to:
* Identify potential developers and collaborators – all the subject matter experts, prototypers, managers, fabricators, CAD designers, reviewers, funders, and other potential supporters according to our Open Source Product Development Process
* Identify sourcing information, especially for hard to find parts like Steam engine piston rings.
* Identify other supporting information that can aid in the development of the 50 GVCS Technologies
