ArcGIS Explorer free map viewer coming in 06


ArcGIS Explorer free map viewer coming in 06
Originally uploaded by GISuser.com.

ESRI's newest viewing client, ArcGIS Explorer is reported to be prepared for release in early 2006. Users can pan,zoom, rotate (Globes), and integrate data and servies from ArcGIS clients, WMS services, and even Google Earth KMLs. Rather interesting as Google never really had any intention (as far as I have heard) of making KML a data standard, however, it appears that the likes of ESRI, FME, and others are now making KML an important data standard to be supported. More on this free 2D and 3D viewer available from ESRI at www.esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgisexplorer/index.html - posted by GISuser.com

At the GCQ1RQ "Landru, Guide Us!" geocache, Boxford State Forest, Boxford/N. Andover/Middleton, MA.

So this trail was closed. In the middle of the forest. And Doug and I thought it was painfully ironic because ALL OF THE FOREST IS FREAKIN' ANIMAL HABITAT.

gah.

Didn't anyone put up trail closures where we ran into freakin' beaver dams? no. That's freakin' habitat. Flooded the trails with its habitatness.

gah.

click the Support tab. Then, click Software Downloads and type GC82
into the search field. Click EDGE PC Card GC82. This takes you to the
support page.

Download the "Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager" and install it. It should be newer than what came in the box.

NOW you can insert the card :-)

My MApping Buddy Google Map hack for Real Estate

Try a demo at www.mymappingbuddy.com/demo.shtml - posted by GISuser.comI've always known that in the business world, Real Estate was going to really take hold of GIS and geospatial and run with it.. think about it.. everything about real estate is based on geography and there's likely no better use for GIS than in Real estate apps (both for the front end and the back-end). Blue Fire Group Inc. launched the myMappingBuddy The "mapping buddy" is built on the Google Map open API.

Frapper.. another sweet Google Mashup for Social Networking

Today I stumbled onto another sweet Google mashup... Frapper
(http://www.risingconcepts.com/frapper/) What a cool mashup! The idea is
a friends + mapper site that results in a frapper group. This concept
takes social networking to a new level, enabling users to create a new
group (aka. frapper) allow people to join and then they can shout out!
Check it out, it's very cool. I've created the GISuser frapper.. feel
free to sign up and shout out. See

FW: glenwood canyon

glenwood canyon

satosphere posted a photo:

glenwood canyon

The glenwood canyon, as seen through the famed California Zephy. One of the prime examples of the ruggedness that cannot be experienced in any other mode of transportation.

The route from glenwood springs, eastward, snakes through the mountains along the glenwood canyon, formed by the colorado river. Both I-70 and the transcontinental railroad share this narrow canyon as it winds its way through the dry mountains. The railroad here literally hugs to the cliff side for most of the way through sharp turns and occasional tunnels.

Just to sample this breathtaking journey, just fire up Google Earth, turn terrain on and open this file. Play the direction to experience perhaps a part of what you actually get going in a train.

Here is a prime example of how the canyon looks: brown river, the interstate on the opposite side shelved between the river and the steep cliffs, the dry mountains topped by a breathtaking mid-day sky.

bushfire 2005

The fire was in the land bordered in red. I only went to the side along the bottom so I'm not sure how far it extended "around the corner". There is a scout hut at the end of the wedge where some of the firemen were hanging around, and it did't seem to have gone into the bush to the right. There's a small creek (probably dry) there, that may have just formed enough of a break.

Catt Family posted a photo:

upcoming in Google Earth

As well as Flickr, notes and other stuff added directly by the user, geobloggers also trawls the API of del.icio.us and upcoming. Quietly adding that information to it's database. And because it's in the geobloggers database at can be viewed via the geobloggers main site, or queried via the API and feeds.

The locations are geocoded from just the zipcode. So you can use geobloggers to find events near you or in a specific area, just not the exact location.

Here's the Google Earth network link that'll find newest Upcoming Events...

Google Earth Upcoming

(Nearest coming soon)

Geocoding from street number, name and zipcode is too API intensive at the moment, i.e. I'd have to depend on another service from another website and geobloggers is already a web of service consumption, aggregating and feeds.
