The folks at Cartography have just completed a 9 part series on the state of online mapping as follows:
I have been bouncing around this week due to work and haven’t posted very much, but instead of filling up the page and RSS feed with a few notes all at once I am going to just touch on a few announcements in one post.
Some of you may have seen this site on the sidebar ads over the last few days. I had often wondered if anyone other than Kinko’s would offer large format printing. GeoPrinter goes one step forward to offer giant plot sizes and next day printing. If you know someone who doesn’t have a large format printer, but could use one, you might want to point it out.
I still have a spot for a blogger or podcaster (or just someone who is interested in talking about blogs and podcasts) who plans to attend the AAG meetings in Chicago in March and who is interested in participating in a panel session on the use of these new technologies. If you are interested please email me at Ã¢â‚¬Ëœjesse at very spatial dot comÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
This is an interesting list of audio made available by MIT ranging over many areas of study. Check that out at MIT World on LearnOutLoud.com – Your Audio and Video Learning Resource.

I just realized that we have not actually blogged James Fee’s Planet Geospatial. We mentioned it on the podcast, thought we had here…I was wrong. So…
Planet Geospatial is a web based RSS aggregator that pulls together all of the geospatial technology related blogs that James has uncovered (he offers up his OPML file for those of you using a software aggregator). This page acts as a great one stop for a variety of information sources.
Very pretty. They don’t mention geography, but U think the image on the monitors says enough!

Not exactly spatial in the way the conducted it, but it is easy to see how it could be a significant variable in their work. The Census of Marine Life (COML) looked at over a 100 years of prices of seafood to infer impacts such as over harvesting of marine species. A great use of the historical record in an outside the box scenario. The detailed press release is available as a pdf from the COML website
