I'm curious to know how many cartotalk members are going to make it to the ESRI users conference August 7-11? Erin

I'm going to the UC (shameless plug coming). My map gallery entry is over in the Peer Review section. I'm also giving a paper presentation:

Paper #: 1242
Session Title: Smart techniques for a low-budget, high-performance wildfire GIS
Date: Thursday, August 10, 2006
Time: 9:15 AM - 9:45 AM
Room: Room 29 C
Abstract: "This paper describes the implementation of the Mission-Driven Wildland Fire Mapping Project at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California. The project, a simple data-collection and analysis effort, is burdened by the restrictions imposed on field data collection at Camp Pendleton. These restrictions spurred the innovative use of GIS. In 2005 the project produced valuable fire data that can be used for environmental planning."

Please come check it out. I think it's been an interesting project.

I'll be there, mostly working at the software showcase island for mapping and visualization, and also helping out with a technical workshop on cartographic effects. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourselves. :D

I will be there. Haven't missed the conference since moving back to San Diego.

Pete - don't let me forget that I want to come to this. Umm...considering that you're working on this project with some of the staff in my office, I had better show up, eh?

Of course I will be there. :)

I will be there most of the week, in the ESRI Spatial Outlet (book store).

I'll see you in Madison!

I'll be there as well. Look for the Platts booth and come by and say hello. Should be an informative and fun trip.

I had an excellent experience at User Conference this year!

Took in some great sessions as well as meeting alot of interesting people. Met alot of people new to GIS and were interested in learning alot more about it. Also met a few cartographers and let them know about CartoTalk. :)

Erin, I went by the Platts booth on Wednesday, but nobody was there in the late afternoon. Unfortunately I didn't have time to pass by again since I had to be at the ESRI Press and Map Station booth all day Thursday.

What did you think of this year's Mapbook?

I heard that a map I made was on the cover.

The conference was great! Actually, a map I entered into the gallery won a local award - Best Cartography. The locals here in San Diego, who put on the San Diego Host Booth, have all of us local cartographers / GIS technicians, put maps up for display in the booth (as well as the map gallery). I was quite honored to have been selected for Best Cartography. I'll try to post a digital edition in the next few days.

I'm not sure of the results of the overall map gallery, as the results have been posted. As nice as it was to be recognized by my local peers, there were some *outstanding* examples of cartography in the gallery this year, that I'm sure put my works to shame. There are some deserving individuals, and I'm anxious to see how those maps did.

On Thursday afternoon, the ESRI Cartography SIG met at lunch time. It was a very good meeting. Myself, and Paul from ESRI, and one or two others, mentioned Cartotalk a few times. Most people had not heard of it, and, along with ESRI's resources, we talked about what a great resource Cartotalk could be.

Someone in the room mentioned they were new to cartography and ArcGIS, and looking for someplace to get some constructive comments about their work. They were encouraged to post here. I hope we see some new members coming to the board (and contributing) because of the conference.

Also, there are a lot of pretty neat cartographic tricks and improvements coming for ArcGIS 9.2. I'm excited to give those a try.

I was at the conference all week, and made a presentation called "Creating Cartographic Products for the Western Oregon Plan Revisions using ArcGIS." Or something like that.

At the Carto SIG meeting the ESRI participants seemed quite interested in getting input on the direction they should be going with future releases of ArcGIS. I would encourage anybody with strong feelings on this to try to participate next year. I expect they'll send a contingent to NACIS too.

And yes Matt, your map was on the cover of the map book. In fact, the Portland State University Geography Department had a few representatives in the map book this year.
