Are you currently employed in the field of GIS? Help contribute to GIS Lounge’s study about the state of GIS employment and the skills needed to succeed as a GIS professional. The results of the survey will be published in early 2012 on GISLounge.com. This is a great service to the community and the more folks that take the survey the better the results. Check out the short survey at http://gislounge.com/gis-skills-and-employment-survey/
Not much more to say since you guys are the reason that we keep doing the podcast year after year.
On Tuesday Sue and I sat down for our first distance presentation. Our audience were faculty and students at the University of Szeged in Hungary where a friend/colleague of ours is spending time as part of a Fulbright. Since we were on Skype and in front of mics anyway I recorded the presentation to share. This wasn’t recorded for VerySpatial, but it is the easiest place for us to share it…and hey, we needed something for GIS Day.
In the near future I will update this post with a video version which will have the slides to go along with the audio as well as a few videos from Sue’s Virtual Morgantown project as demos.
Each year as the holidays approach (and yes I include GAW in that list of holidays) we try to reach out to a vendor who carries Geographic or cartographic items to see if they would be willing to cut you guys a break/provide a discount in exchange for some free ad space on VerySpatial. This year we have talked ODTMaps.com into working with us…and for the first time it was actually easy to get a retailer on board.
We hope to have an ad up on the site soon that will highlight the 10% discount you can get using our coupon code veryspatial on the ODT Maps order summary page. However, in the short term they would like you to know that if you sign up for the ODT Maps newsletter you will get an exclusive newsletter subscriber discount in the November 21 issue of the ODT Maps newsletter. To sign up for the newsletter head over to http://odtmaps.com/ and select Get E-Updates or follow this direct link. The newsletter discount will save you 30% Nov 23-28…ah Black Friday/CyberMonday sales.
If haven’t visited the ODT Maps site before take a minute to check it out. They have everything from maps to inflatable globes to magnets and stickers. They also have a selection of gift suggestions which includes a Hugg-a-Planet skin for those do-it-yourselfers who want to make the world themselves…and then hugg it (our Hugg-a-Planet still holds a place of honor). But perhaps most awesome of all is the large collection of south oriented maps and the EarthBall which has NITEGLOW CITIES! I am telling you now the the EarthBall may very well be the grand prize for our 6.5 year anniversary contest coming up in January…which means I need to go register for the newsletter so that we can afford to give one away (with the help of the coupon).
