Garmin Ltd. (GRMN) maker of many commercial and consumer GPS products, is a rising (perhaps risen) star of the stock market. For all of you financially savvy market watchers, you will have seen the astounding performance of the company’s stock price. Since January 1 of this year the stock has risen from $65 to $102 (as of the close on June 28). The company has been highly recommended by stock market gurus such as Jim Cramer. The stock announced a 2 for 1 stock split on May 3rd and now offers dividend. Their products are good (I own 3 of them) and its an indication of a rising consumer market for location-aware devices. The stock is a secret no longer.

Gary Price at Resource Shelf continues to send on links that I don’t find.
This week it’s two government resources. First, The Future of Land Imaging. It’s the website of the The Future of Operational Land Imaging Working Group, a team given the mission of developing “a long-term plan to achieve technical, financial, and managerial stability for operational land imaging in accord with the goals and objectives of the U.S. Integrated Earth Observation System.” There’s a nice history of Landsat (this site seems to be just about Landsat and its continuity) and the group’s plan of attack with will be capped with a final report in February 2007.
Second, is a new online atlas, the Atlas of climatic controls of wildfire in the western United States (Title page/abstract), a 20 Mb pdf (pdf). Bottom line:
Our results clearly demonstrate the link between wildfire conditions and a small set of climatic variables, and our methodology is a framework for providing near-real-time assessments of current wildfire conditions in the West.
