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.

Dell has launched a service that allows customers to track open service calls on Google Earth Pro.  I’m really not sure why Pro is required.

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.
