The USGS CLICK (Center for LiDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge) and Airborne 1 have entered into a collaboration to share extents of the largest compilations of high-resolution LiDAR point cloud data in the world. This data will reside separately on the CLICK site (http://lidar.cr.usgs.gov) and lidardata.com. Data on lidardata.com is available in various formats including LAS, ENZI, XYZI, and DEM. This collaboration will provide an informational link between the two efforts, showing users where both free, publicly-available lidar data exist on CLICK, as well as commercial, pre-flown resale data exist on lidardata.com. Technical integration of the two sites is ongoing and a release date will be announced soon. USGS eventually hopes to provide 10 terrabytes of unrestricted data. WOW see more HERE

Google Latitude is a new app available for Google users (account required) who want to share their locations with friends or colleagues. Using Latitude you can share your location (send an invitation to a friend) and share information via mobile or PC. Location sharing starts only when both you and a friend agree after an invitation is sent. If pravacy matters you can share, set, or hide your location – or turn off Google Latitude using the privacy menu. To keep friends in the know you can quickly set your status message (like, “I’m at work”) and upload your photo within Latitude – It also syncs directly with Google Talk. Latitude is available on Blackberry, S60, and Windows Mobile, and will be available soon on Android and iPhone. See more
