GISuser news roundup for Wednesday

I was just thinking that I often promote other people's stuff on the blog but what about all the great stuff that we offer? Therefore, here's my very own shameless plug for today's edition of GISuser Today - the must have GIS industry newsletter. A simple reminder about our 3x a week GIS industry news roundup... just published this AM is our latest edition. Today I share with you some updates about our free GIS tools repository (Can you believe there's more than 800 pointers in this mammoth directory!). A primer on Geocaching (this is a very basic primer i.e.. Geocaching 101) is discussed in our spotlight today. The industry news update features words from Idelix who've introduced the Idelix Labs (devzones are a think of the past, its now cool to have your own Lab!), Trimble is promoting a new GPS Survey system, how about a Lidar extension just for ArcGIS users?, speaking of LIDAR, we also have news from the organizers of the very cool ILMF event (I was at this year's event in Denver and it was awesome!)... in addition to these updates you'll also find a lead from our friends Chris at GlobExplorer who's wanting us to spread the word about a cool job opportunity for a GIS professional in their Walnut Creek, California office, an event reminder is presented from Autodesk who are running yet another free webcast by "Pete" all about the advantages of using Autodesk Map 3D 2007. This edition of the newsletter is archived online at http://www.gisuser.com/newsletter/oct112006.html - check it out and register to receive it in your mailbox if you find something useful

Hey, Glenn. Thought you'd be interested in this unbelievably data-rich Google Earth mash-up that FortiusOne is developing. I don't think they've released it yet, but their blog has some interesting visuals... http://blog.fortiusone.com
