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.
This is our first mention (that I know of) on an outside site. Between getting a few emails and this plug there is a little pressure to make this podcast and blog all it can be. On that note, we hope to have our first column up this weekend, with our second close on its heels if Frank gets it to us before he starts his first semester of course work toward his next in a string of degrees.
Here are a couple of links from Download Squad relating to Yahoo Maps, Google Maps, and VirtualEarth. Take a look.
This is an article about a Bryce like product. It doesn’t have direct ties to existing real world data, it does allow you to make a lovely, photorealistic, world of your own.
We have so many choices for Atlantis that you have to wonder whatever happened to Mu…I guess the Indian & Pacific Oceans are just too big.
Amazon’s A9 search engine couldn’t be left behind of course. They have had their block views for over a year now and they make one of the best examples of spatial multimedia out there without being attachment to a map. Head over to http://maps.a9.com/ to take a look and check out the press release link below.
I believe this question mirrors most everyone’s sentiments.
1 part Google Maps, 1 part MSN Virtual Earth, and a heaping helping of Flash. This is a great front end for all the data available through these new sites.
We have some fine products sporting the VerySpatial logo and our new catch phrase, “Geography…In Stereo”. Use the link to the right to check out the products. We are especially happy with the square tile. We will say more on this weekends podcast if we have received the shirt and tile that were ordered. All proceeds from the CafePress store will go towards supporting hosting and equipment expenses.
