To add a medium to the worldmap

If you want to add an alternative media organization into the worldmap, you have to locate it in the AMGP's Google Map AND to add it to the global geographic inventory.

To add a medium to the AMGP's Google Map

  1. First, if it is not already done, send an email to amgp@riseup.net, and ask for an invitation to contribute to the map. An AMGP administrator will send you an invitation quickly
  2. Go to “A worldmap of alternative media”, clicking the picture.
  3. Click again the picture “A worldmap of Alternative Media”
  4. The AMGP's Google Map appears on your screen
  5. Create your Google account following the procedure
  6. Click “Mes cartes”
  7. Click “Modifier”
  8. Add a bookmark where the alternative media is located (if you don't have the precise address, just put it anywhere in the city or country of location. Do the same to protect some “illegal” media from State repression !)
  9. Write a short description (name, kind of medium, Internet Site) and add the Alternative Media Global project's page related to this media in the Geographic Inventory.
