As I pointed out in the podcast, VerySpatial was the first Geography podcast in the US while ventriloquy is the first over all (in Singapore). This podcast is attached to the blog voyeurismwhich focuses on Geography education and the author’s journey towards their dissertation. Head over to the blog to check it out.
We would like to put together a presentation session and/or a panel session on blogging and podcasting in Geography and related disciplines and technologies. If you are a blogger, podcaster or feel you can significantly contribute to the use these media in Geography please contact me. If you are interested in presenting a paper please include a tentative title and a short description of your topic. If you are interested in participating in a panel please include your experience with podcasting or blogging and how you feel you can contribute to the panel and of course a URL if you have a blog or podcast.

If you are looking into them and would like to write a review of your experiences send it to us and we will post it as one of our review columns. Have fun playing with them.

Cartography is the blog for the Canadian Cartographic Association. As you might imagine this site has great links to mapping related websites and technologies. Definitely an informative blog for its first five months and worth an occasional perusal.
The NRCS’s Web Soil Survey has finally gone live. I have seen it since its alpha, and it is a good substitution to the hard copy soil reports. The WSS is built on ArcServer and ArcSDE technologies and will continue to grow. Take a look to see what they have implemented and I will try to remember to blog any big changes.
