Open Collaboratives

Open Collaboratives are open to all OGF mappers, with the following constraints:

  • All mappers are encouraged to check the existing state plans before editing to ensure new mapping complies with the overall vision for the state.
  • Motorways, railways, and major waterways should not be altered, except to add more detail.
  • New cities with a population larger than 100,000 are not permitted. New cities with a population larger than 50,000 must be approved by a state coordinator first.
  • Coordinators may revert edits of non-conforming changes.

Guided Collaboratives

Guided Collaboratives are official FSA collaborative projects, most of which date back to the FSA's launch and are intended to showcase the best collaborative mapping in the nation. Coordinators oversee the planning and mapping of each Guided Collaborative state, although some decisions may be considered national issues decided by the FSA community as a whole. New mappers must contact state coordinators before mapping in these states.

Limited Collaboratives

Limited Collaboratives are semi-private FSA collaborative projects: mappers are assigned a county in a Limited Collaborative state by the admin team through the usual territory request procedures. Mappers are expected to collaborate with neighboring counties and follow the overall state plan, but are otherwise pretty free to map their county as they see fit.

AR120-33 West Massodeya yoyo21 This state currently has counties available. Visit the Overview Map to view and request vacant counties.

Closed Collaboratives

Closed Collaboratives are private FSA collaborative projects that are fully organized, planned, and mapped by two or more mappers, with (applicant state) or without (partnership state) the opportunity for other mappers to potentially join the project. In Applicant States, new mappers must apply to map in the state and may be approved or denied by the state's coordinators.

Non-Collaboratives are private FSA states held by an individual owner. While these owners are fully expected to collaborate with neighboring states and with the FSA community as a whole, these states are generally mapped exclusively by its sole owner.

About the Project

The Federal States of Archanta is a unique project within the OpenGeofiction community. The FSA is a single nation comprised of 62 states (and a few territories) mapped in a North American style. Within OGF, states are allocated similar to other nations; however, each stateowner is responsible for collaborating closely with neighbors and articipating in national discussions and initiatives to guide the overall mapping development of the nation.

Rights and Responsibilities of FSA Mappers

The following is an overview of the expectations of mappers in the FSA, and basic information about the FSA's organizational structure.

  1. The AR120 project, also known as the Federal States of Archanta, is an American-style country that is also one of the OGF community's largest collaborative mapping projects. All mappers of any skill level are welcome and encouraged to participate.
  2. State owners have additional responsibilities above and beyond collaborative participants. The right to own a state is not absolute and can be revoked with just cause by the OGF admin team.
  3. As part of this collaborative nation, state owners are expected to participate actively; maintain the national cohesion of the country; and coordinate with neighboring state owners on interstate issues.
  4. Matters of national importance are determined by discussion and consensus of the various state owners in the AR120 forum. In these discussions, each mapper is treated fairly and equally, and each mapper is able to have their opinion heard, respected, and considered; however, all mappers are expected to abide by the final consensus.
  5. The FSA Coordinator is responsible for organizing and maintaining these discussions and helps to build consensus on national issues. As a state owner, the coordinator is able to express his or her opinion in discussions and is expected to facilitate consensus-building exercises, but is not able to unilaterally veto or approve any recommendations without a consensus among the other state owners. The FSA Coordinator is not a member of the OGF admin team and is subject to a Vote of Confidence among the mappers of the FSA every six months.
  6. All state owners are expected to adhere to these rights and responsibilities, in addition to the standard OGF community rules. Ownership of a state can be revoked by the OGF admin team at any time for just cause.
  7. All matters of state ownership, including adoption and expulsion procedures, are exclusively the responsibility of the OGF admin team. The admin team is not bound by the rights and responsibilities included in this list.
  8. When a new mapper takes ownership of a state that was previously mapped, all existing mapping that the mapper does not wish to retain must be offered for adoption and relocation by other mappers before being deleted. Some mapped areas may be deemed areas of national interest whose alteration or removal may be restricted or prohibited.
  9. All mapping is expected to be in a realistic North American style, predominantly mapped in Ingerish (English). Areas with historic influences may be mapped in indigenous or other colonial languages.
  10. The sovereignty of each state mapper is an essential part of this unique national collaborative. Any mapping that otherwise complies with the above rights and responsibilities is encouraged and should be protected from any outside interference.

Turnover Procedure and Green State Etiquette

For various reasons, occasionally a state may "turnover" and revert from an owned state to a vacant state. As the FSA is a unique large collaborative project, there are additional guidelines for dealing with mapping from previous stateowners in a vacant state. When a state does become vacant, the following steps occur:

  1. The state will be reviewed to determine if any parts of the existing mapping should be considered areas of national interest that the next mapper will be required to maintain in some way. "Areas of national interest" include, but are not limited to, major map features that have a direct impact on other states or the FSA's history as a whole (large cities, military facilities, significant topography, etc.) and areas that are mapped in detail and high quality.
  2. If the mapper vacates a state while in good standing (generally meaning not due to inactivity or an admin team eviction decision), the vacated mapper may be permitted to take some of their mapping with them to their new state or territory. Areas of national interest will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
  3. While the state is vacant, existing mapping will remain and is not to be edited or changed by any mapper; however, per the agreed-upon rail company framework, new interstate railways can be mapped in states with pre-existing railway infrastructure. Vacant states with little or no existing development should remain a "blank slate" for the next mapper.
  4. When a new stateowner has been identified, they are permitted to keep any and all existing mapping and are generally welcome to add, edit, change, or delete existing mapping as they see fit, except any previously identified areas of national interest. New stateowners should consult with neighboring states and the FSA community as a whole before significantly changing interstate facilities such as motorways and railways.
  5. If the new stateowner chooses to do any large-scale deletion of mapped features, the new stateowner is required to offer said mapping to other FSA stateowners before final deletion, preferably via the FSA forum. Adopted mapping is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If no mappers wish to claim the affected areas within a reasonable amount of time (a week is recommended, but no less than three days), the mapping can be deleted.

Mappers who are interested in requesting a vacant state are welcome and encouraged to directly contact the FSA Coordinator for more information and recommendations before officially submitting a request to the OGF admin team.
