I just wanted to announce an upcoming symposium on Virtual Globes (i.e., Google Earth, NASA World Wind, ArcGIS Explorer, etc.). It's a really good group of speakers. Virtual Globes are a really important technology for the future of cartography. Please feel free to circulate. The announcement follows.
Registration is now open for NERCOMP's upcoming workshop:
*"VIRTUAL GLOBES: GIS 2.0"
*January 19, 2007
Virtual Globes are being used increasingly by the news media; federal,
state and local agencies; teachers; commercial agencies, and by people
of all ages for personal use. A Virtual Globe is a three-dimensional
software interface that allows users to observe and manipulate
representations of the Earth or other worlds from a variety of views
over the Internet. Users can often customize their own Virtual Globes by
adding place makers or other geographic information such as satellite
imagery, buildings, roads, demographics, etc. Virtual Globes have
enormous potential for incorporating spatial information and spatial
reasoning within a learning environment. A variety of Virtual Globe
products and applications will be presented followed by a discussion of
the various technologies.
For a full schedule and registration information, please go to:
*9:00- 3:15 (Coffee and Registration start at 8:00)
*NERCOMP Members: $111, Non-Members: $211
