Jesse’s presentation Reaching out to highlight Geography from the AAG ’11 in Seattle. The presentation focuses on how to use social media and new media to distribute information about Geography.
While in Seattle for the AAG’11 we took an afternoon to visit the Pacific Science Center where we came across a Science on a Sphere installation. SOS is a NOAA led effort to visual global activity and impacts on, well, a sphere.
I came across a forgotten folder in my spring hard drive cleaning with a few interviews and videos from the 2009 ESRI UC. I will be posting these found objects over the next couple of months.
We begin our time warp back to last summer with Frank’s interview with GeoEye about their GeoFuse data search system for web, Google Earth, and ArcGIS.
So, while perusing the latest and greatest stuff on the intertubes, I can across a cool site called Xtranormal, which offers you some fun tools to create your own animated movies online, without having to pay a lot for animation and editing software. There are different 3D characters, and you can add expressions, dialog, and animations to your movie scene.
You can sign up and make movies for free, and while there is a premium subscription for a fee, I think the free tools are plenty for dabbling in the 3D movie-making biz!

Jesse and Sue cover what they saw and discussed at the 2009 Game Education Summit.
This is a recording of Jesse’s AAG 2009 presentation titled “Building and Experiencing Virtual Worlds”.
We found this video wrap-up from URISA ’08 back in October. Sue and I share our thoughts from the courtyard of the place we stayed.
This year’s holiday video doesn’t offer a spatial shopping guide like previous years. Instead we offer suggestions on how to make your holidays greener and help your wallet at the same time.
