On Monday, Boost Mobile launched their new GPS-based games, Swordfish and Torpedo Bay by Blister Entertainment. According to the article, “Starting today, Boost customers are the first and only mobile phone users in the nation to be able to download and play location-based GPS (Global Positioning System) games on their wireless phones.”
This is an article from Geoplace about the Time Team and its use of GIS to map Roman sites in Britain
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.
As you may have noticed I have added a few pages to the site. There are now links to the podcast, columns, and links pages, as well as link to the right that will map that last 20 URL locations (I think). The podcast page has links to the podcast files for direct download, blurbs about your hosts, links to the shownotes, etc…
Our first column should go up in the next couple of days once our editor-in-chief Sue is finished correcting my mistakes.
The links page will slowly be filled then divided into multiple pages as we find sites to support Geography and geospatial technologies.
