Ga Day! I just wanted to say that. It reminds me of one of the presenters on ESRI's live training seminar, Editing Tips and Tricks today. We held it in our Library so that all of our GIS Users could attend. It had some helpful pointers and hints, but man it was boring. I'm just glad I had the internet available to keep me awake. Don't get me wrong, I love that ESRI offers these free seminars, but they are not all as good as the others. Maybe it was the subject?

"Global-i is a 3-dimensional interactive globe that displays information about the world in your browser. The Earth can be rotated and inspected and displays can be changed to see information in the most appropriate form. Global-i has been described as "A Global Marketer's Dream" but it is not just for marketers or ecomomists. It is for anyone who wants to learn about the world and what makes it go round. By viewing this information in context, the world makes more sense. At present the emphasis is on economic data and there is plenty of other information too - health, infrastructure, energy, military...........and more - from present day back to 1960 and we are adding to this list all the time." This is Google Earth before Google Earth was born. Check it out at 31 Days!
