This audio is from the Special Acheivement in GIS session at the 2007 ESRI User Conference. We speak to folks from Del Mar College in Texas and amongst ourselves about the event.
Just before we spoke with Jack Dangermond at the SAG awards session at the ESRI UC, we got the chance to meet Dr. Roger Tomlinson, commonly referred to as the ‘father of GIS’. He was a good chat, and informed us that West Virginia played an early role in wine made in the US. Click on the image to see it at full size.

We were pretty excited and really honored to get a SAG award this year, and it never occurred to us that such a thing would be of interest to anyone outside of geography and geospatial circles, but apparently there was an article about the award in our local paper, the Dominion Post, that we totally missed. Nothing earth-shattering or very interesting to the rest of the world, but it is kinda cool to see VerySpatial in a newspaper headline (even if it is on page 7-H!).
Now, in our defense, moving labs and catching up on PhD work has pretty much consumed all of us since we got back from San Diego (as evidenced by our lower volume of blog posts in the last couple of weeks), so we will have to see if any of our friends and neighbors still have their copies.
Ok, I promised these like three weeks ago. In my defense, the move took a lot out of me. Of course in my condemnation, I could have posted these before the move! Anyway, leaning on the “better late than never” principle, here are my notes from the sessions I attended. Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend as many sessions as I would have liked, as we had a pretty full interview schedule. The first session details all the notes I took concerning new analytical tools coming, most notably the spatial statistical stuff. The second session details a lot of the really cool stuff coming on the server side of things. In the first session, the presentation was fairly methodical and I was able to take stuff in and then write it down. However in the server session, they covered SO much material in such a short period of time that I was more or less typing a sentence or two behind what they were saying. Be sure to let me know if I missed or misrepresented any of the details!

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.
