Monday, May 02, 2005

I mentioned the hack linking craigslist apartment listing and houses for sale data and Google maps when it launched. Now, three weeks later the New York Times reports (may require registration) that HousingMaps.com received 200,000 hits since then. Ok, but GIS people did this years ago - I recall ESRI touting its relationship with realtor.com. I visited that website - see if you can find the “map it” button. (Hint: it says “map these properties”) Have Google and craigslit (and a hacker) snaked the masters?

Word is this year marked the final version of Intergraph’s Geospatial World. (I had to leave early Thursday, so I didn’t get the official word.) Apparently, next year users and partners will gather for the “Intergraph 2006 Conference.” I suppose realigning the divisions to save money also suggests that a single large event may be more cost effective than separate events for each division. Autodesk learned that the hard way when it held multiple events in different cities instead of a single large Autodesk University. MapInfo tried that too. Both companies returned to a single longer larger central event after those experiments.

After announcing earnings and a restructuring this week, Intergraph’s CEO announced plans for reducing its workforce from between 150 to 200. The cuts will save the company, which has 3,700 employees worldwide, about $12 million. The cuts should be completed by the second quarter of 2006.
