Calculate Voltage Drop and No’s of Street Light Pole.


topology and manifold

In the past, I’ve used a GIS called manifold. I’ve often wondered why it’s called that. Apparently, when you’re in the 3D world, the terminology can be a little different. When you’re cleaning the topology of the data that you’re working on (ie, trim lines, connect vertices), the equivalent in 3d is “manifold geometry”. It’s weird, but since I’ve been using sketchup, the 3d arena can be challenging with terminology.

I have checked about 5 or 6 images. The FEMA folks could use a hand id’ing really damaged areas. Just click the link and do a  few images.

Now, the time has come for google to start the process of street views but off road. The google team started at the Grand Canyon and I’m wondering when they’ll put up the pics on GE.

Next, they have to rent a submarine and go 5 miles down the Marianas Trench and post up LIDAR and Bathymettry!


Spatial SQL Tools from Codeplex.

Now, this is interesteing. I’ve been skeptical up to now about SQL SERVER gis data types, but his maybe the gamechanger

Here is a nice GIS project template that ESRI was kind enough to post up.


It has some key things missing, the PM plan. But it does contain the charter.

Anyways, take a gander.


I’ve wondered about reserves and how they fit into PM. Here is a pretty insightful post regarding the 2 more generally know types of reserves. I remember studying for the PMP and seeing maybe 2 other types of reserves.


This is what I need to review more for the exam. I’m thinking since I’m getting an audit, I can study a little more relaxed, but with a sense of urgency. The knowledge area, Cost, I believe is probably the easiest, but we’ll see when I actually take the exam.

Here is a cool graphic I found that helps to visualize PM
