This GPS unit looks fun. A combination of GPS, MP3 player, with PDA functions tossed in. Though the price tag might be a little high.
Here is a cool UK website that details a project that “aims to collect a geographically representative photograph for every square kilometre of the British Isles” They bill it as a geography project for the people, since the photos are submitted, and apparently already have 30,000 grid squares covered.
Extraterrestrial mapping efforts continue 🙂
The future of Hubble may seem similar to that of Landsat 7, but it is still getting the job done. Archives are nice too…
