     Tutorial: Create a Google MyMap, add your flickr photos from a Mapplet, then embed in your website - As of this week, adding a Google map, or even better, your Google "MyMaps", to your webpage is a snap. You know how simple it is to embed a youTube video into your blog? Well, it's that simple. Here's a short tutorial to show you how simple it can be. We'll create a custom google MyMap, add a Mapplet, embed some photos from our flickr account, save the map, and embed it within a website... no problemmo! To finish I'll offer up a couple of photo geotagging tools for those of you with GPS-enabled cell phones and a tool for mannual geotagging for those with no access to GPS. If you enjoy Google maps, flickr, and geotagging photos then this tutorial is for you!

    Google Earth 101 - Using the Image Overlay Tool in Google Earth - In this article you will learn how to use the image overlay functionality provided in Google Earth to import existing images into the 3D display and drape them over the existing terrain.  Many image file formats can be displayed in Google Earth including jpg, bmp, gif, tiff, tga, png, and a number of others. 

    Google MyMaps + TakItWithMe + Garmin Communicator API = WOW! Every once in a while an application comes along that makes you sit back and say... WOW!

This amazing resource offers up free travel guides/maps that enable you to easily explore virtually any major destination on the planet.

    A Look at the Geocoding Functionality Build Into Google Maps API V2  When the Google Maps API was released in early 2005, one of the most notable omissions was the ability to geocode addresses.  This posed more of an inconvenience that anything else as there are many geocoding APIs available from various sources, some of which are free to use. 

     Lat49 A Mashup Advertising Engine to help monetize map mashups - Google has laid the foundation for map mashup development -- more tools, more exposure... etc... Now there's a solution from LAT49 (Beta) to help put more cash in the pockets of developers and map publishers.

    Autodesk at 25 Years, the Autodesk Timeline and some of my favorite AutoCAD moments - In 25 years that tiny company has grown to over 5,000 employees in 33 countries, with product offerings spanning a variety of industries, from architecture to civil engineering to computer animated graphics. Read  on for some of the best Autodesk articles featured here at GISuser over the years.

    Autodesk’s Enterprise Solutions, 2008 - Welcome Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise 2008, TopoBase 2008 - This commercial product offering, built on the same architecture as the Open Source Autodesk MapGuide, was announced alongside the official release of Autodesk TopoBase 2008 – an enterprise-scale solution with several vertical application modules. The company is now making a “splash” with the official launch of these two enterprise solutions.

    GISuser Spotlight... 10 Cool reasons to migrate to MapGuide Enterprise - Based on MapGuide Open Source, Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise offers simple deployment and helps streamline the development of web-based mapping applications. Did you know that Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise also allows users to directly publish MapGuide maps and layers to Google Earth? Available with two viewing choices, the DWF-based viewer supports Microsoft Windows XP and other common Windows systems while the AJAX viewer uses Asynchronous JavaScript and XML to deliver maps and spatial data to the browser.

    Realizing The Possibilities of Autodesk Map 3D in Denver - The event served to inform users and would-be users about the possibilities brought about by using the latest apps - in my case, I took in the Geospatial track which looked at the GIS solutions - AutoCAD Map 3D, Raster Design, MapGuide, and Design Review.

    Conference Review: Agents of Change (Autodesk UC 2006) - 7,500 Autodesk `agents of change' (this year's theme) attended AU 2006, a 40% increase over 2005. They represented 60 countries and 3,000 firms and, according to my informal and inadequate survey, a large proportion of them were architects trying desperately to get a handle on Revit, Autodesk's `building design and documentation system'. (from our sister site at Amerisurv.com)

    Share Spatial Information Across Your Organization With Topobase 2007 -Autodesk recently announced the availability of Topobase 2007. To understand where this solution comes from you'll need to go back to the 2005 Autodesk acquisition of c-Plan. Already well established with a strong European user base, TopoPlan enables users to see the big picture and make better decisions, improve data quality and inefficient processes, and perhaps most import, provides for efficient sharing of spatial information across departments.
