Good morning! I'm at the office early getting ready for a couple of meetings this morning. We have a budget review meeting where our City Manager practices his presentation to our City Council. We usually find out about raises at this one. Keep your fingers crossed for us poor City employees. Afterwards, I have a meeting with our economic development corporation to discuss a joint ArcIMS site. My hopes are not too high on this one. They seem to be leaning towards doing their own thing, which may be a bad idea, since no one there has any GIS experience. On the home front, I will be dominating folks on the tennis court again tonight. Bring it suckerz!

"DIVA-GIS is a free mapping program that can be used for many different purposes. It is particularly useful for mapping and analyzing biodiversity data, such as the distribution of species, or other 'point-distributions'. With DIVA-GIS you can: Make maps of the world or of a very small place, integrating, for example, state boundaries, rivers, a satellite image, and the locations of sites where an animal species was observed; Make grid maps of the distribution of biological diversity, to identify “hotspots” and areas that have complementary levels of diversity; Map and query climate data; Predict species distributions using the BIOCLIM or DOMAIN models; Create ESRI shapefiles; import and export grid data; and much more!
You can also download AVID-GIS (version 0.3), the command line version of DIVA-GIS or have a look at a simple implementation of Google Maps; expect more on-line DIVA soon..." Check it out at
