Presentation at NACIS

I presented today at the North American Cartographic Information Society annual meeting, on new features in Google Earth Pro, Fusion Tables, and the Google Maps API. NACIS focuses a lot more on design, on cartography, and therefore it was a very interesting conference to be at, different from the usual GIS and developer conferences I present at. I sat in a session on rethinking the bike map afterward. Unfortunately, I had to leave after that, so didn't get to participate in much of the conference.

Here's my slides. There were a lot of questions on all aspects, but particularly on imagery.

My Trip to University of North Texas

I had a great two days at the University of North Texas, organized by Andrew Torget, professor of History. I met with historians, engineers, folks from the College of Information, geographers, and more. Most of the meetings were unstructured, free form meetings. Those are sometimes the most fun. Today I did a presentation that was mostly demos from the new features in Google Earth Pro 5.2 and Google Fusion Tables. There was a lot of interest in the different features, and there's a link there in a getting start tutorial I threw together.

Plus I'm really starting to like, especially now that it's open and you can track the click.
