Want to know what we are talking about in the podcast each week… Don’t want to rush to the blog to find out… Sign up for the show notes listserv. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, no subject or content required.

In a couple of weeks we are going to do an episode where we discuss what we think is important in a desktop GIS package and discuss many of the desktop GIS packages that are currently available. This is going to be the first monthly install of a multi-part series. Later we will focus on web mapping, remote sensing packages, object-oriented systems, developement options, etc, but this time we are focusing on stand-alone desktop GIS packages.
If you would like to help, please check out the list of commercial and open source desktop GIS solutions I have started. If you know of a software not on the list yet or if you have experience using some of the less mainstream packages please leave a comment at the bottom of the list page. We hope to discuss this on Feb 4, so please leave comments by then.
Note: If this is your first comment I have to approve it before it shows up on the page. We do this to keep the spam out.

I know I mentioned this the other day, but I have been busy working on a file server in Sue’s lab so that they can get to their data and haven’t had a chance to find anything else to blog.

Keep an ear out for this weekend’s 26th episode. I will probably post it early since we are going to do a press release at the end of the week.
We were mentioned in an article on Geography Awareness Week events (on p9 for those of you who receive the newsletter).Ã‚Â Nothing big but it gets our name out to an audience we haven’t had a chance to push ourselves on yet
As for those of you visiting from the AAG, welcome and we will see you in Chicago in March!

While the podcast has been recorded, I am writing today and won’t get a chance to put the pieces together and post it until late tonight or Monday morning. Apologies for the delay.
We are approaching the inaugural episode of the VerySpatial Podcast. In order to get a little experience with the microphone we decided to make a promo for distribution prior to release.
