Geographic Information Systems (GIS) GeoBlog

Another GIS blog has found its way into my RSS aggregator: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) GeoBlog. This blog does a great job of the 2 things I think blogs are supposed to do:

  • point to resources that you think are useful to others (yeah, he mentioned us today 🙂 ), and
  • dole out a little information on what is going on in your day-to-day that others might take advantage of
  • It is a fairly new blog so you should be able to catch up quick or just jump in midstream.

    NASA’s World Wind now has Moon images

    A nice article at NYTimes.com (free registration required) highlights NASA’s World Wind viewer and the ten-terabyte satellite imagery archive that is available and now includes imagery of the lunar surface at a resolution of about 66 feet. Be aware, though, that World Wind requires a high-speed, broadband Internet connection and a computer with pretty decent performance.

    You can download the free application from NASA’s World Wind website
