Visimation’s GIS Data Import for Microsoft MapPoint utility enables GIS data to be viewed in MapPoint. Since MapPoint is considerably less costly than GIS systems, as well as much easier to use, MapPoint can provide the features that many users of geographic information need without the complexity and expense. Visimation’s GIS Data Import for Microsoft MapPoint supports two of the most popular GIS file formats… ESRI ShapeFiles and MapInfo MIF file. After import, the lines and polygons from the GIS file will display in MapPoint. The Data Import utility’s Shape Property Viewer is a floating window that will display any text information associated with the shapes in the original GIS file -see http://www.shapesource.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=140

Here’s the latest from Sony Ericsson if you want to make your friends (and the guy at the cell phone outlet) drool… enter the P1. Based on the UIQ form factor, this device sports a QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel camera, WLAN and Voip, touchscreen display and loads more. If you aren’t familiar with UIQ its an open platform that offers broad potential for multimedia applications from operators/carriers, content owners and third party developers and sits on the Symbian OS. My colleagur Richard wrote up a nice piece on the device after an interview with a key SE Exec. See HERE
Ok, this one is way too cool… this clever app from fortiusone enables users to quickly and easily create a poll about anything, view it, share it, etc… and embed on your blog… NICE! Even cooler, users have the option of viewing results in Google Earth. You can try it out and create your own poll at http://www.pollmappr.com/ – More about FortiusOne can be found at http://fortiusone.com/ – you can see my test poll at http://www.pollmappr.com/polls/78 – you can grab the KMZ here – http://www.pollmappr.com/polls/78.kmz – or simply cast your vote using the application provided below…
FortiusOne will be at Where 2.0 later this month and the gang is using the app to serve up a poll on what kind of beer they should serve at the event!
