ESRI GIS Education Community

While we weren’t there for the announcement today, we have had a few minutes to leaf through the announced ESRI GIS Education Community site that:

is a living environment for the exchange of ideas and experiences, curriculum, software, and data among GIS educators around the globe

Most of the content has existed in different places on the ESRI site, but from what I have seen so far, it is much easier to access everything from lesson plans to the MacOS X widgets that I have not even seen before (just feed widgets so far, but I am sure they will role out an ArcWebExplorer widget eventually). If you are an educator or on the prowl for continuing ed content head over to the ESRI GIS Education Community site and give it a look.

Reminder – Live show and geobloggers

A quick reminder that a week from today will find the VerySpatial crew in San Diego for the ESRI User Conference. During this frantic week of presentations and interviews we are going to take a little time to try our first VerySpatial show with an audience on Tuesday, June 19 at 4:30 in Room 11A/B of the San Diego Convention Center. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Also, a quick reminder of the geoblogger meet-up later Tuesday night at 8:00 that we will be attending.
