Glenn over at AnyGeo noted that GITA and ACSM will postponed uniting their two conferences which were to run together in 2008. According to a press release a large construction event caused ACSM to change its plans for the joint event, which I understand was planned back in 2006. So, what event popped up to cause the change? A quick Google search suggests it’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008 set for Las Vegas, March 11-15. The joint GITA/ACSM event was to be in Seattle March 9-12. Now, GITA will be held at that time. I could not find any mention of the change at the ACSM website.

ESRI and MapInfo are featured in GCN’s article about how Google/Microsoft et. al. are doing visualization and not GIS. The article is titled “Geospatial and the elite:
Old-school geographic information systems still dig deep on mapping and analyses.” I’m not sure I’d have used the term “elite” since ESRI, MapInfo and others have worked to hard to get the many of the tools of GIS into the hands of the many, not just the few.
