Look, I get it. Letting me get data in and out of SaaS products is critical. But I can’t see how this will ever truly affect Google’s spatial data product given their licensing restrictions. The OSM guys are thinking that Google could just do what Yahoo! did and let people digitize off the imagery. Of course that is based on the assumption Yahoo! actually had the right to give users the ability to digitize “their” imagery in the first place. Spatial data owners rule the world…
The open data crasher squirrel is on the case…
One of the more critical mashups for the fall season is the NFL TV Distribution Map. It is a fine line between having to watch MIN @ CLE vs DAL @ TB. Of course if you just listened to Denis Leary, you wouldn’t have this problem. Me? I’m still getting used to the Arizona Cardinals games not being blacked out at home.
So we’ve got a service pack on top of a service pack dot one release headed our way. I suppose this fixes everything that 9.3.1 was supposed to fix. Sure why not?

I’ve been a long time fan of running GIS applications on flash drives. Now that I’m rolling around with a flash drive that you can’t tell is a flash drive, I always have my GIS apps with me. That said, there is a much easier way to do this than rolling your own apps, Portable GIS. Version 2 was released today and if you have any interest in having GIS apps in a small package, save yourself the time and just go with Portable GIS.
