Just in case you want to keep up with your ESRI campus changes, the newest building is set for completion in December. Building Q will include “a 300-person auditorium, an executive briefing center, a prototype laboratory and office space.” Marketing, contracts and industry solutions will come together in the $5.1 million building under construction on New York Street in Redlands.

TomTom Home got better today. Geekzone offers details.

First off users can share goodies like voices, routes, POIs, etc.

Second, they can rate the content.

Third, there’s now automatic update of content already downloaded: “if someone updates a POI set of favourite restaurants, their changes would automatically be sent out to TomTom HOME users who have previously downloaded that set.”

Map Share got updates, too. It’s possible to request updates based on areas of interest (by country/region) to save space. There’s also “a status indicator which keeps users informed on how up to date their maps are.”

TomTom is doing everything right to create a community around its nav device. I can’t wait to see how this plays out once Tele Atlas is involved.

Susan Cutter and Christina Finch at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, US, have taken data on wealth, among other things to determine which areas in the U.S. would be hardest hit in case of a natural disaster.

The maps go back to 1960 and run forward to 2010. The good news? Overall vulnerability has gone down over the years. But areas growing in immigrants seem to be getting worse.

The paper is available online - it’s from the National Academy. The title “Temporal and spatial changes in social vulnerability to natural hazards.”
