Reader Randy sent a tip noting that Stewart, the company that sold off GlobeXplorer in January released some financials including this tidbit about income related to the sale.

Includes a $3.2 million gain ($2.1 million after taxes, or $0.11
      per diluted share) from the sale of two subsidiaries, GlobeXplorer(R)
      and AirPhotoUSA(R), in the first quarter of 2007. Also includes a
      charge to earnings of $5.1 million ($3.3 million after taxes, or
      $0.18 per diluted share) for title loss provisions relating to
      four large title losses.

Exactly 21 years after the disaster in 1986 (I was graduating college…) IBS, an IT firm in Russia announced the completion of a GIS project called “The Integrated Shelter Database” (ISDB) for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.” The system integrates various data from the plant and uses technology from Oralce, Microsoft and ESRI.

Apart from helping to operate the Shelter more efficiently and to monitor its state, the system enables coordinated actions of the subdivisions responsible for nuclear, radiation, general industrial and fire safety at the Chernobyl NPP. Deployment of ISDB made it possible to enhance safety for the Chernobyl NPP staff, and also for the population and the environment.

Lazy Drafter reports you can read your feed right from AutoCAD! I recall when Bentley included a browser in MicroStation, which is, for me in the same ball park.

Now, to those of us in GIS those things might sound strange (or maybe not?). Back in the day, and perhaps still now (I don’t feel qualified to say since I’m hardly the CAD user I once was), AutoCAD was as much an operating system as a CAD package. My one time boss, Matt Davis told me that - he was of course right - back in 1992.  Autodesk at least feels that’s still true. Is it?
