Best of the Blogs 27 September 2011

By on 27 September, 2011
First up is an update on last week’s reports of the Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World’s reduction of Greenland’s Ice cover by 15% (it's closer to 1%).
Spatially Adjusted have a post entitled “The Guide to What Was Important at FOSS4G for People Who Didn’t Go to FOSS4G 2011”, which probably gives sufficient explanation to its content.
Got Geoint? have a great post (along with some videos of a BBC documentary) that show the beauty and art of maps. It’s a must for any cartography fan.
If you use Google Maps on your website, and would like to run some analytics to see just how people are using your maps, then Google Maps Mania have a post that will help you do just that.
Spatial Sustain has a great post that outlines a talk given recently by George Hawkins, general manager of DC Water, about how utilities are at the forefront of saving human civilisation.
To continue with the Spatial Sustain greatness, the blog also has a post asking “where’s my spatial jetpack?”, or, in other words, what were the spatial promises of the future that never materialised.
Very Spatial alert us to a Guardian article that talks of a map of the inevitable worldwide Zombie Apocalypse.
And that’s it for this week’s episode of BoB. But don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter, and to send any interesting stories to schester at intermedia dotcom dotau.
