As hurricane season starts to heat up in the Northern hemisphere, Esri has added a new Social Media map resource (think community or crowd-sourced media) enabling the community at large to contribute and share relevant resources and media. The map is intended to be simple to use, empowering the user to easily and quickly add links to relevant extreme weather related news stories, weblinks, photos, and videos. Simply select a topic category, click to a location on the map, and add details of the resource to share.

AutoCAD for Mac Built for Mac OS X
AutoCAD for Mac has an intuitive interface that will be familiar to Mac users and makes available many of the powerful AutoCAD features and functionality to customers who choose to work natively on the Mac. AutoCAD for Mac takes full advantage of Mac OS X, including graphical browsing of design files with Cover Flow and use of Multi-Touch gestures on Mac notebooks, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad for intuitive pan and zoom features. AutoCAD for Mac will also be offered free to students and educators through the Autodesk Education Community, where more than 25 Autodesk software products are available for download
The AutoCAD WS mobile application will enable AutoCAD users to edit and share AutoCAD files on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch so they can have real-time collaboration even while on the go.
From Autodesk… “We’re announcing a new mobile app for the Apple iPhone and iPad, as well as plans to release Project Butterfly as a web and mobile application we will call AutoCAD WS. Using your Butterfly (or AutoCAD WS) account you will be able to edit and share your AutoCAD drawings from a web browser or mobile device. All will be coming later this fall, so please stay tuned!”
