Bing-based Map for Talbot County EMS and other Government GIS News

The Talbot County Department of Emergency Services, MD, offers the “Talbot County Incident Map” based on Bing Maps.

The Dakota Resource Council (North Dakota) offers a map of oil spills, saltwater spills and other spills between 2000-2013. The map itself from GuageCartographics has no "about" nor any explanation of why the map was published and how often it's updated. The article from local TV station says its updated "continuously." A tiny little "i" in the lower left corner of the map links to MapBox terms and feedback.


The University of Peshawar, Institute of Urban and Regional Planning and FATA Secretariat Directorate of Monitoring and Evaluation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop linkages for specialised services in Geographic Information System as a tool for planning and monitoring to bring peace and sustainable development in underprivileged area of the country [Pakistan].
