Very Spatial

Good Day! I've been trying to take advantage of my short week by catching up on projects that I have been putting off. I put in almost 13 hours yesterday, but we now have a GIS intranet site here at the City. Also, check out the GeoURL button on the bottom right of the page. GeoURL is a location-to-URL reverse directory. This allows you to find URLs by their proximity to a given location. Find your neighbor's blog, perhaps, or the web page of the restaurants near you. By clicking on the link you can see the sites near my home. Check it out at http://geourl.org/near?p=http://www.gis-geoblog.blogspot.com.

I am "Very" excited about today's post. VerySpatial.com offers a Very Spatial Podcast which is your weekly source for information on Geography and geospatial technologies. Geography touches most things we do everyday, but we rarely even think of it. This podcast seeks to point out how it is filtering into our digital lives and daily lives. The majority of the connections are currently through iTunes. You can also use one of the myraid of great RSS aggregators to connect using our Feedburner link. There is always the low tech version where you make sure you go to the page to download the podcast each week. The VerySpatial blog is intended to be a location for the hosts and participants of A VerySpatial Podcast to link to interesting sites and articles on Geography and related information. In addition to the blog itself the site hosts columns, links, and a few downloads on relevant topics. Check it out at www.veryspatial.com.

Hi, I haven't any other way to reach you. You could be interested in adding slashgisrs.org in your Links list. Cheers :-)
