Today’s Radar

April 2nd, 2012

On my radar today:

1) Tom Patterson’s Shaded Relief website, wherein he offers up the spectacular FREE seafloor map of Hawaii, other great maps, data, articles, and tutorials. If you haven’t already checked out his site, it is a must-see for every cartographer.

2) I follow @cornellalumni on twitter, and today they tweeted about a Dragon Day video. I was in the midst of watching it (at minute 1:04 to be exact) when I spotted a crowd member holding up a sign saying “ArcGIS 4 FREE.” I was certainly not expecting a reference to GIS software on this video so it took me by surprise.

3) The O’Reilly Where Conference 2012 is being livestreamed via GISuser today through Thursday April 4.
