Reminder: avsp Drawing ends today

Just a quick reminder that our first drawing will take place at the end of this week and will be announced on Episode 20 of avsp to be released December 4. We have added the option to scan and email your entry to make sure it arrives in time for the drawing, though you must still send us the physical postcard. All entries must be received by 11:59PM PST, December 1, 2005 .

Good luck!

Mappr! Where It’s At.

I know that someone has already blogged this, but I can’t remember who…Either way, Mappr from Stamen Design offers up a flickr/map mashup. They tout themselves as “an interactive environment for exploring place, based on the photos people take.” I would argue they are exploring space, but that isn’t really the point. There are actually three or four themed maps that you can find if you wander the site for a second, but the front page is all about flowers. Check it out at Mappr! Where It’s At.

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.
