If you are traveling during this holiday season, check out the FAA Flight Status Map. Check flight delays at any airport. For traffi alerts, try MSN’s links to major metro areas. See also maps and charts by FlightAware for flight vector activity over major metros. [Thanks to Gary Price for these last few links.]

Just a note that I’ll be giving the blog a rest over the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and Friday. Also, next week I’ll be in Orlando, Florida attending Autodesk University on behalf of Directions Media. I look forward to meeting readers of Directions, APB, and Location Intelligence Magazine.

Happy Thanksgiving!

“Sensitivity to rent increases and map industry changes sent [map store owner] Carrier looking for a smaller store footprint. U.S. Geological Survey topographical maps, for example, have gone digital and will not be stocked in the new store.” 

Donna Goodison of the Boston Herald explaining the reopening of a Cambridge landmark, the Globe Corner Bookstore in smaller quarters in a Harvard University Building in February. The store closed after 17 years at one location in Harvard Square four month ago.

WebProNews describes Verizon’s new MobileGates Traffic, FuelFinder, and StoreFinder: “Mobile Gates’ applications are intended to help those customers avoid heavy traffic, locate the lowest price gasoline, or find the closest Verizon Wireless store through interactive color maps on their cell phones.” Anyone want to pay for these?

It sounds like a TV show: twelve students, a budget of $2,500 and a marketing campaign to be built. It’s part of a marketing course. The client/sponsor in this case? NGA. “National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) is sponsoring an unique hands on industry education course which marketing students from six universities around the country will participate and create a marketing and branding campaign to increase the awareness of NGA and their career opportunities.” Georgia State students did their marketing on campus last week. “There were NGA company representatives on hand and overall, they seemed impressed with what the Georgia State students accomplished.” Not sure what that means – NGA staff? Contract with NGA contracts?

The whole thing reminds of the stories I heard in grad school about how students in the geography department would protest when the Defense Mapping Agency (what eventually became NGA) came to campus to recruit. Now NGA is getting students to recruit for the agency.
