In an unscientific, but quasi-spatial analysis of the geographical divide between the home territory of New York Yankee baseball fans and those of the Red Sox (aka Sawx) Nation, New York Times reporter John Branch traveled to bars and bakeries in search of the eluvise boundary. His video report tells the story of his "ground truth" to find where to put the rather dynamic boundary between the two.

Just in case you want to be first on your block… Autodesk didn’t give dates at our recent press gig and just yesterday I read on a GIS site that Map3D would appear in March. I’m pleased someone told Ralph Grabowski what’s going on.
The ones about which GISers might care should appear:
Friday, March 23
Thursday, April 5

Officer.com has a nice summary of “After the Storm: Technology Lessons Learned from Hurricane Katrina” a session presented at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in October 2006. Among the presenters was ESRI’s Lew Nelson who listed four lessons regarding geospatial from the storm. The big themes: standards, data sharing, preparedness.

That’s the basic question behind a student’s research at University of Hertfordshire. (Some GIS/geography trivia: Hertfordshire is home to Stevenage, home to Cadcorp.) I read about this on the OGC Forum and when I saw it again on AlertNet, Reuters website for humanitarian news, I thought APB readers could help out.
There are two surveys - one for GIS users, one for GIS providers - that take 20 and 10 minutes respectively. Both are online here.
I like this comment from the blogger at AlertNet about our industry’s product names:
..., there’s a whole range of services with technologically clever-sounding names, like AutoDesk Mapguide, ESRI ArcWeb, Intergraph GeoMedia and Manifold.
