MapInfo quietly updated its website in recent weeks. How nice that the company did not issue a press release! While the navigation is clean and the look professional, there’s a bit of “That 70’s Show” in the opening graphics. And, if you’d not heard, “MapInfo is Location Intelligence.” But seriously, for those who want to be up to date on the company, the company offers an RSS feed of its press releases and an analyst bulletin each quarter.

MobHappy, a blog by two LBS pioneers (one was recently editor of TheFeature, one of my favorite blogs until it shut down in June) notes an LBS course offered at the University of Southern California. Among the goodies the students read are Mike Leibold’s essay from May on what’s needed to build a geospatial Web. The whole syllabus is online, too.

The Chicago Tribune, as a public service I suppose, lists websites to help kids with the new school year’s homework. For geography it lists two, and neither is Google!

geography.about.com/library/maps/blindex.htm — Amid a jumble of ads on the commercial search site About.com, a solid selection of country maps.

http://www.geographynetwork.com — Comprehensive map site for advanced users, maintained by the mapping software company ESRI Inc. of Redlands.”

I think the About.com site, which I’ve been reading for some time, thanks to Matt Rosenberg’s careful editing, is belitted as a selection of country maps. It’s interesting the Trib chose ESRI’s Geography Network over National Geographic’s MapMachine built on ESRI technology, and I like to think, geared to “less advanced” users.

GITA has published a new white paper tackling the question: Should government geodata be provided for free? The organization’s GEOXchange listserver is the source of much of the information. Much of it simply describes the situation in different countries.
