Hello folks,

I a delighted to have found you here. I am an old school scriber from my topo days back at Chicago Aerial Survey and Ayers and Associates. I dropped out of mapping due to the frequent digitization projects to go back to school to learn about electronics and computers. Took an electronics path that paid well between then and now but recently my heart is telling me to come home. I am thinking of buying ESRI's course on Amazon.com as a starting place, and will seek out the best local school for a GIS certificate. I have dabbled with Photoshop and Illustrator and the online API's. I recently attended the AAG conference in Boston and met some interesting people and attended a bunch of sessions which were great. Thank you to this group for allowing this newbie to learn from you! - Beetle :)

Welcome from another old scriber. There's a few of us here that still remember the days, although the numbers are getting thinner. You'll find this to be a great resource.

What's scribing? Is that like styluses and wax tablets? (just kidding!) ;)
