1 part Google Maps, 1 part MSN Virtual Earth, and a heaping helping of Flash. This is a great front end for all the data available through these new sites.
We have some fine products sporting the VerySpatial logo and our new catch phrase, “Geography…In Stereo”. Use the link to the right to check out the products. We are especially happy with the square tile. We will say more on this weekends podcast if we have received the shirt and tile that were ordered. All proceeds from the CafePress store will go towards supporting hosting and equipment expenses.
As you may have noticed I have added a few pages to the site. There are now links to the podcast, columns, and links pages, as well as link to the right that will map that last 20 URL locations (I think). The podcast page has links to the podcast files for direct download, blurbs about your hosts, links to the shownotes, etc…
Our first column should go up in the next couple of days once our editor-in-chief Sue is finished correcting my mistakes.
The links page will slowly be filled then divided into multiple pages as we find sites to support Geography and geospatial technologies.

For those of you interested in the cutting-edge tech-side of GIS and other geospatial technologies, the Call for Participation has gone out for the 2006 O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference. According to the conference website:
“The O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference frames the ideas, projects, and technologies that the alpha geeks are thinking about, hacking on, and inventing right now into a coherent picture from which to extrapolate and upon which to start building. Expect much of what you see in early form here to show up in the products and services you’re taking for granted in the not-too-distant future.”
