I know alot of the sign for here in the US. There are several signs that I know for other countries as well, but some of them I am not sure which are the native signs and our local sign. My notes have almost 2 signs (some more) for almost every country. I would like to getting them in SignPuddle, but it is a question of time for me.
PS Charles, sorry for sending this email to you. I forgot to change the TO: to the list when I pushed reply. Opps.

Hector, I met you at Deaf Way II.  This is Charles Butler.  Your map is excellent.  I need to go back through my notes and do an equivalent for Brazil.
I wonder if someone has done anything like it for the USA.  Much of what I have seen has been fingerspelling, though some cities like Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Baltimore, and Washington DC have their own signs.

Hello Thierry!
Yes. I see that you have been very busy, adding over 360 signs since 
yesterday into the French-Belgian SignPuddle - wow!

Thought you would like to see a small portion of a remarkable map, 
with all the states in the country of Colombia written in SignWriting 
by Hector Devia. Hector, we love this map!! This is only the bottom 
portion of it. I hope to post it on the web full size, which is quite 
large. But it would be fun to see a map of Europe with sign-names for 
countries written in SignWriting too... Val ;-)
