Raster data freaks can now go and Rasterbate!

Thanks to our friends at VerySpatial for a tip about this cool app... the Rasterbator. I have to admit I pretty much spewed coffee all over my Dell 6000 when I first read about this one! The rasterbator rasterization service does to rasters in their terms "rasterbation"... what a great keyword for the Glossary! Here's the skinny... The Rasterbator is a web service which creates huge, rasterized images from any picture. The rasterized images can be printed and assembled into extremely cool looking posters up to 20 meters in size. You can go Rasterbate at
