Odds and ends from the blogosphere and beyond:
- Researchers are reporting that cell phones may interfere with GPS in aviation settings. Maybe the FAA won't have us tortured by inane chatter after all.
- Ordinance Survey Ireland has released Trail Master mapping software for Ireland. Via Vector One.
- Slashdot hosts a discussion that asks, are in-car navigation systems too distracting? This was prompted by a widely reported insurance industry study on GPS navigation.
- In a new spin on location based services, free wi-fi with local ads is being offered by a Silicon Valley company. Duh! How long till somebody thought of this?
- Very Spatial reports on a (not family friendly) IPTV video podcast that pits a person with local knowledge against a GPS in a navigation showdown.
- More geographically aware readers probably know that the poles migrate, but did you know how quickly it can happen?
- A nonprofit settles out of court for $15,000 for having produced a misleading map.
- AScribe has a story on the ethics and legalities of RFID and GPS tracking.
- To follow that, how about a press release on DriveSync, a GPS vehicle tracking system?
- Reaching back a couple of weeks, Google Maps Mania did an update on Google Maps, Google Earth and Macs.
- You pros out there may be interested in the GIS Tips & Tricks blog. Found via GIS Geoblog.
- Since my day job has me working as a conservation professional, I feel obligated to report that GIS Geoblog also has a story on the Society for Conservation GIS.
- This week's "Waypoints" list is long. Thanks to Planet Geospatial for helping me keep track of stories that I had seen, but forgotten where.
