I need to credit James Fee (http://www.spatiallyadjusted.com/) for a tip about this one (although I’ve been a mapdex fan for a little while)… Mapdex is a global index of 1,781 servers, serving 32,433 map services, containing over 400,000 GIS Layers, covering more than 4,000,000 columns… now you can add a toolbar in ArcMap providing direct access to the service – http://www.mapdex.org/MapdexToolbar/
Obviously I’m not interested in being a recipient of an award (my blog is simply for recreation as my true efforts go into the development and maintenance of GISuser.com, a leading commercial GIS news portal) but there’s a few great GIS blogs out there that may make the grade. Check out http://2006.bloggies.com/ and nominate your favorite blogs for a bloggie!
Geography/GIS Students take notice… National Geographic recognizes student research in the mapping sciences with awards sponsored through different organizations:
