It's hump day! I've got a busy one. Our consultant will be in this morning. First we are going to discuss the requirements our ArcIMS site. I'm curious to see how this goes because we are asking for alot. This afternoon we are going to meet with our Public Works department and a consultant of theirs to discuss some overlap in work between the two consultants. That could turn out to be very interesting. On a different note, I had Peter Konnecke contact me from Australia. Peter runs the Konnecke blog where he gives news, views, rants, raves, opinions and images from an Australian perspective usually focusing on Technology. Check it out at Oh yeah, check out my 43 places map and list on the right. I'm hooked!

"OpenLayers makes it easy to put a dynamic map in any web page. It can display map tiles and markers loaded from any source. MetaCarta developed the initial version of OpenLayers and gave it to the public to further the use of geographic information of all kinds. OpenLayers is completely free, Open Source JavaScript, released under the BSD License. OpenLayers is a pure JavaScript library for displaying map data in most modern web browsers, with no server-side dependencies. OpenLayers implements a (still-developing) JavaScript API for building rich web-based geographic applications, similar to the Google Maps and MSN Virtual Earth APIs, with one important difference -- OpenLayers is Free Software, developed for and by the Open Source software community."
