In observation of Dr Seuss’s birthday, here is a fun reading of Tish Rabe’s Cat in a Hat story “There’s a Map on My Lap!: All About Maps (Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library)” which I clearly need to add to my shelf (and as a standard reading for my intro classes).

Neil deGrasse Tyson was recently on The Daily Show and he backed Sue’s excitement about space (not to be confused with space) and the importance of a sense of exploration on the cultural trend toward STEM education. All and all, it is just an awesome interview/dialogue.
Sorry folks. The AAG activity has pushed back the release of episode 345 to at least Monday.
Have you been involved with a project that utilized GIS or location-based services to engage citizens? We want to hear details about which app was used, and how the public was engaged using maps and technology. The more creative, the better.
Please share links to projects, research, news, a blog post – anything that documents your story.
All you have to do is share your activities as a comment on their post to be entered in their raffle. Get to commenting as the deadline is Friday, February 24th.
You know you have some great examples to share, so get out there and get involved and get a chance to attend a great conference.
The VerySpatial crew will be at the AAG in New York from Friday, 24 February to Tuesday, 28 February. We have a handful of conversations lined up, but if you would like to sit down with us at the conference to talk about your project, class, product, etc. contact us via email (or twitter or facebook or google+) to arrange a time to sit down and talk. If you aren’t going to be at the AAG (for instance if you are hitting the Esri FedUC earlier that week instead) but would like to talk, we can always set up a phone/skype interview in March.
See you in New York!
