SpatiallyAdjusted blog

This is still one of the top GIS-Centric blogs out there. James Fee has been an outspoken proponent of all things geo. When you get into very specialized areas of tech (ie – GIS, Security, Databases) they tend to be more narrow for the general audience – James Fee tends to break that paradigm. I don’t know him personally, but he’s always been one of the more “real” GIS geeks out there. Here is spatiallyadjusted.com

I remember seeing a list of the top GIS blogs – I think I’ll compile my own:






I get the microstation dgn file format at least 1x a month. I have googled extensively for a free dgn converter and the same company always comes up – autodwg. This is really ridiculous! I have used arcview to convert, but there is always an error when you try to convert from dgn to shape file.

help a brother out!

here is the link of the company: http://www.autodwg.com/dgn-to-dwg/?gclid=CO-c5PSPlbICFYaDQgodT3AAVg

I thought that QGIS would be able to do dgn conversions, but aonly PRE-V8.


CA Greenhouse Gas Emissions Map and other Government GIS News.

This is pretty nice. I think the CARB is probably one of the more forward thinking organizations out there and this is another manifestation of that ethos.
I am a believer in the GHG tracker, and hopefully we can be able to mine some of this data from Google (maybe as a pre-made Fusion Table)?

Interactive PMI chart

I came across this on BrainBok PMP. Harwinder links to a post on PMHangout that has a pdf of all 42 PM processes. This is fascinating b/c I need actually write something like this to get my head aroung the PM process. Very useful.

I’ve been getting into LISP recently. Pretty powerful and with literally a 5 or 6 statement file, can do wonders when working on a project.

I’ve only done project management off and on for about 5 years now, but there are several things that I find enjoyable about it.

1. Not dull. Every project has its own challenges/skillsets/pitfalls. It’s not for the weak kneed.

2. You get to work with different people.

3. Sometimes (not always) you get recognition. Hey, you need an ego boost sometimes.
