New Poll, Old Poll

We have a great new poll question suggested by Nadir from the Boston area. The question is

Of the 5 elements of GIS (People, Data, Hardware, Software, and Processes) which do you think is the most important in successfully delivering GIS.

If you would like to elaborate on your response, please feel free to leave a comment on this post. The old poll was the question of which OS do you prefer. The response started out pretty even, but in the end Windows XP had about 1/2 of the votes with MacOS X and Linux tied for second. Vista, unsurprisingly, came in as an “also ran” or a blip on the radar.

Get over to the front page of VerySpatial to share your thoughts on the new poll.

State of the Map ’08 presentations

A recent post on the Mapperz blog has links to several of the presentations on SlideShare that were given at this years State of the Map held in Limerick, Ireland. It is a pretty interesting group of talks and, as usual, we wish we could have gone to see them in person but it is great to have access to the content for those of us who couldn’t make it. You may want to keep an eye on the State of the Map or OSM sites for more information on the presentations and other content that will surely be rolling out of the conference.
