So I just spent the last hour or so flying through the 645 posts from the geoblogs that I haven’t had a chance to read over the last month (being tech support’s assitant in a brand new building eats up your time). When you read blogs regularly it seems like things are kind of shuffling […]
As those of you who have listened to AVSP Episode 112 have already heard, Matt Ball and Jeff Thurston have started Vector1 Media a new magazine that will look at the confluence of Sustainable Development and spatial technologies. I am sure you recognize the names as long time geospatial media creators online and editors of […]
Wired magazine is hosting a new geoblog from Bruce Sterling. However, there is a twist in that this is the blog of a fictional character named Harvey Feldspar and it takes place in the year 2017. For those unware of Sterling’s work, he’s a fairly prolific science fiction writer (particularly of short stories). A lot […]
Much like Direction Media’s discussion on the Intergraph acquisition, they bring up quite a few ideas in their weekly podcast around the MapInfo acquisition. Definitely worth a listen.
ESRI has made a few preconference interviews available on the website for those who can’t make it to the Dev Summit and to help those attending decide what to check out at the conference (great airplane fodder for those of flying to Palm Springs). Next week we will have a few podcasts with presenters and […]
We have a possible time for a geoblogger meet-up (and possibly showoff) at the AAG in San Francisco on Wednesday evening. There is going to be Spatial Technology Gallery (a la Where Fair) and Alan suggested that this might be a good time to meet-up. I like this idea since it would give us a […]
I was over on the ESRI support center site looking for something this morning and noticed that there is now a Support Center News Blog on the ESRI blog site. There is just an intro post so far, but we will see how it grows. ESRI Support Center News
The folks over at Twingly (non-English site) have created what may be the world’s coolest screen saver. It basically reports blog activity around the world in real or near real time. Here’s the YouTube clip of the application working. I haven’t downloaded it (mostly because I can’t read what I believe to be Swedish), but […]
Leszek Pawlowicz emailed to let us know that he has started a new blog this week, called Free Geographic Information Tools, where he will be talking about, of course, free and inexpensive tools for GIS and geospatial applications. As he puts it in his first post on Wednesday: “I’ve decided to start regurgitating some of […]
While the term neogeography is generally related to Platial or the Placekraft blog, there is a new site at neogeography.net that looks at the idea and is an open conversation about neogeography and related ideas. Check it out and share in the discussion.
