The LABOR DAY weekend is here so watch out for all the police while your out. They crack down during holidays centered around drinking, lakes, and B-B-Q's. While you were out, I found some news regarding GIS, mapping, and GOOGLE EARTH. Judging by the internet keywords and buzz, GOOGLE EARTH is the most popular term with regards to GIS-related news. The user-friendly software, free to download, is quickly becoming a popular site for people and governments around the world.
