Good morning! I think I am ready for my Executive Committee meeting today. I only worked on it until nine last night! I also hope to finish reviewing our addressing standards today. This is a project we have been working on for too long! If you have ever done this you will understand why. Have a great day!

"TopoFusion is GPS Mapping software for Windows. It downloads maps (Topo, Aerial Photo and Satellite) automatically from Microsoft's TerraServer and NASA's OnEarth server, storing them on the hard drive for offline use. Please download and use the free version. It is fully functional except that 1/3rd of the map tiles are obscured with the word DEMO. It is not time limited, so you are free to keep and use it. The aim is to continually nudge the state of the art in mapping software forward. A few examples include: Efficient, versatile map display engine. TopoFusion runs the way a modern mapping application should--fast and smooth.; Combo Topo/Aerial Maps: Topo and photo maps are combined using alpha blending to visualize both at the same time.; Image Processing: Adjust brightness, contrast, sharpness and blurring on aerial, topo and combo maps.; PhotoFusion: Geo-reference digital photos using EXIF timestamps. Places photos along GPS tracks and produces HTML pages with clickable image maps.; Multi-track playback: Visualize multiple trips recorded by GPS simultaneously.; Networks: Create and manage networks of GPS data. Combine multiple GPS tracklogs into a network, with duplicate portions of track logs averaged.; Splining/Simplifying GPS data: Increase or decrease the number of points in a track log.
