I just came across two interesting pieces related to GIS (from ESRI). The one shows how to use a National Geographic style representation of a somewhat combined political and geographical representation. The other one is a case study of a web-based tool (including some numerical groundwater modelling) for authorizing well permits.
– National Geographic style basemap: http://bit.ly/HAn3vb
– Web-based Automated Well Permitting: http://bit.ly/HAndCM
– ESRI seems to have released some elevation data, and hydrology related data, mostly in the US, and I haven’t checked (just read the blog entry) – http://bit.ly/HzXSJu
Along similar lines, Microsoft seems to have created a space/time visualization tool called “layerscape” – http://bit.ly/HzXmLE
