From the people that brought you IronSheepSheepCamp and last year's Satan vs. Santa Challenge comes:

SHEEPALLENGE 2012!  The virtual IronSheep competition: virtual data remixed virtually.

In early November 2012, we'll share a super-secret data set with those who register for Sheepallenge.  They can mix, mash, and recompose the data in anyway they chose.  There are no rules about group size or composition, but all authors must be acknowledged on the final submission. 

Final submissions must be sent to Monica ( by midnight EST on November 30 to be considered for Sheepallenge.  Submissions will be judged by a panel of sheep on their aesthetic value and use of the data. Winners will receive a sheep-related prize.

Early registration is now open.  You can register yourself or your group (group can be changed at anytime) by visiting early registration. Undergrad students from Monica's Intro to Cartography and Ate's Intro to GIS class will participate in the competition as part of their course. So signing up your GIS/Cartography class is definitely encouraged!

Questions?  Comments?  Expressions of interest?  Please email Monica at

Let the sheep roll in!
