Calling all students

Creative Juice is holding a competition for teams of college students who can come up with another use for an otherwise throw-away object. Get some students together and get on it! The Grand Prize is a trip to Google's Googleplex in Mountain View, California. In addition to the grand prize, there are $1000's of dollars of worth of other prizes.

Turn around time is short ... September 10th and the prize will be unveiled September 11th so there' little time to waste.

North Carolina Maps

Really great side from the North Carolina State Archives, North Carolina Collection, Outer Banks History Center , and Rare Book Collection, UNC-Chapel Hill. Many maps already digitized and available with hundreds more to come.

LizardTech and NC One Map

An integration has been done with North Carolina One Map for creating an Ortho Server for the state. I am trying to spread the word to end user groups and thought you might be interested in the data available.

Attached is the PR for their Ortho Server for the entire State

Catalogs of imagery available for viewing

These aerials can be brought into any open standards system via WMS and by other means, we also have an arcgis plugin for linking up to the ortho server, this can be brought into Arcmap, ArcGIS, Autocad, google, ArcIMS etc… via this link

Thanks to John for sharing. What a great resource.
