Like many of you, I’m a Seinfeld fan… not just a fan, but I’m a huge fan… likely able to ramble off the plot, quotes etc… from virtually every episode… anyway, of interest to all you other Seinfeld-a-holics out there, check out this innovative Google Mashup (from stolasgeospatial) that maps locations in New York City that actually played a part in Seinfeld episodes. Each icon offers up a place description as well as a detailed description of the episode of interest and the role that the physical location played in the script. To date there’s only a couple of dozen locations posted and I look forward to many more being added. See http://www.stolasgeospatial.com/seinfeld.htm

Dimitri Goldman has introduced me to The WEB-based Geoinformation Data Warehouse Prototype (GIS DW Prototype) – a WEB-GIS decision support system, based on using of: reliable and productive ORDBMS Oracle 10g; universal and effective J2EE platform; simple and flexible XML-based technologies. GIS DW Prototype includes more than 40 thematic layers of SAND – the information about USA Counties, obtained from: USDA Forest Service; National Weather Service; U.S. Geological Survey; USDOT/BTS; Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) and other. A lengthy description of the project is offered in the About section. Check it out at http://dgoldman.narod.ru/index.html
This week I spent a bit of time going over some conference literature in an effort to try and decide which events to hit, which ones sound cool, and what new events might be of interest to GIS users, mashers, and other geospatial technology enthusiasts. I compiled the results into a list of what I bill my Top 15 GIS/Technology events of the coming year. Most are no surprise to you, however, there are a few interesting new events that you might wish to follow or even attend if you happen to have the travel budget. Descriptions of each event are provided along with the requisite contact info and a few notes. To spice it up a bit I’ve also added a few images from some recent events I’ve attended and also list off some pointers to smaller regional events and GIS training and a few fun travel tips that you might find useful. See the article”GISuser Suggested Geospatial Technology Events, 2006″ HERE – http://www.gisuser.com/content/view/8240/ – Did I miss anything that you would list on your TOP list?
