Blog Revival

Hello - It's been awhile since I've posted to this blog. Especially in these difficult economic times, I want as many of you as possible to be able to take advantage of the free GIS maps and resources I have made available over the years. Blogging is new to me, but I think that it's the best way to get the word out to all of you. I'm sort of "old school" in that I've been doing for over a decade, beginning when such things as blogs, podcasts... were way off into the future. Well, the future is here so please be patient as I "ramp up" into the 21st century. I plan now to post to the blog every couple of days at least.

Since my last entry I've added many new things to including many new data sources, free GIS maps and shapefiles, more new free GIS programs and resources.

I also update the free GPS, TOPO and Climate Change Maps.

If you are new to GIS, be sure to check out the "What is GIS?" page and the free Learn2Map Tutorial and Atlas.

Lastly, I'm adding all sorts of new map layers to the inventory of low-cost GIS shapefiles. Currently, the Indian & Federal Lands Shapefiles are available at a very reasonable price - many more to come.

Thanks so much for visiting. Visit this blog and often for free GIS maps and resources.
