Here’s a tip about a new, handy cartography resource from Gretchen Peterson (@PetersonGIS on Twitter) enter the e-book “GIS Cartography: A Guide To Effective Map Design”. Gretchen’s first e-book in the series is Colors For Maps. About the booklet… Colors For Maps is a 40 page booklet in PDF format that contains 30 color palettes specifically chosen for mapping projects. Each palette is visualized in a sample map and in various combinations to make it easy to pick one. Color formulas are provided in RGB and HEX. The PDF format makes it easy to visualize the colors on-screen as well as to print them out on your in-house machines. See more at http://www.gretchenpeterson.com/booklet.php

Interesting to see and hear from the Geo Solution providers here at GeoInt 2010 who have elected to use the event (over 3800 attendees estimated) to announce the launch of their latest Geo Software solutions. Case in point, LizardTech has rolled out an major update to their flagship product with the launch of GeoExpress 8 along with the latest incarnation of MrSID with MG4. ITT has completed several years of efforts with the launch of ENVI 4.8 along with the release of ENVI for ArcGIS Server – this is huge as it means complete image analysis and full integration within ArcGIS – huge! Finally, and not to be outdone, ERDAS has announced details of their annual update via ERDAS 11 (coming soon) – this update includes new versions of ERDAS IMAGINE, LPS, ERDAS Extensions for ArcGIS 10, ERDAS APOLLO and other leading desktop and server products. To promote this significant release, ERDAS is also launching a world tour with customer events worldwide.
