Back in the fall of 2004 the BBC news site started a series called “Planet under pressure”. It covers alot of the important issues facing the world including global warming, pollution, and hunger.
We received the press release this morning for the Boston HyperMap Atlas from StrataVarious, Inc. which pairs Google Maps with the interactive HyperMap Atlas to link together the basic web mapping interface with an atlas that provides all kinds of information, from historic landmarks to government buildings, to hotels and shopping.
I checked the site out and it’s a pretty cool app. I especially like the historic map layer (since history is one of my specialties) Anyway, definitely check out this site.

I have been bouncing around this week due to work and haven’t posted very much, but instead of filling up the page and RSS feed with a few notes all at once I am going to just touch on a few announcements in one post.
Some of you may have seen this site on the sidebar ads over the last few days. I had often wondered if anyone other than Kinko’s would offer large format printing. GeoPrinter goes one step forward to offer giant plot sizes and next day printing. If you know someone who doesn’t have a large format printer, but could use one, you might want to point it out.
