We published another list of open and free data to take advantage of. Check it out and if you know of any more feel free to comment so we can add it to our next iteration.

Volcano Eruptions - Data from USGS Overview We had previously published an article related to open GIS data sources around the internet that were free to use. We wanted to update that list to expose even more resources and provide any new information on sites we mentioned before. Here is the original Geospatial Data Sources Article to get an idea on everything we started with before writing this one. It's worth checking that one o...

Just a friendly reminder that you can easily download and analyze your own location history in Google Maps by going to https://www.google.com/maps/timeline. Here is an example of what I did by putting some data from Google Maps of a road trip I went on in 2012.

The only downside is you can only download one day at a time. You used to be able to download a range of data when it was once known as Latitude. To work around this I downloaded this road trip which was 4 weeks long day by day as KML and then uploaded it into Google FusionTables. Importing the files into FusionTables was very easy as each file was formatted the same way.

New +USGS maps might make +Harold Asmis happy.  New map shows earthquake risk including both natural and induced.  O-Klahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain, is now a hot spot on the map.  
Parts of Oklahoma and Texas have about the same risk of an earthquake as parts of California, the maps show. Why? Wastewater that oil and gas operations are pumping into wells adds pressure on faults.

Very interesting analysis by the Google Earth Blog on how much Imagery is really behind Google Earth. It's all just an estimate but very educated one from their methodology.

RIP Picasa. So a ton of capabilities I'd like to see in Google Photos. This isn't as seamless of a transition as they would like to think.

You don't need to delete your account. Everything is synced with Google Photos. In terms of Google Photos the transition for storage was seamless and already happened years ago. This article is really referring to the last pices of Picasa which exists as a desktop client.

"Surfing the waves of the Digital Frontier"
Introduction
I have a passion for Geospatial technology. I love  engaging with users for engineers and designing strategies for the future of the geospatial community.     

After spending 7 years in the Air Force I am excited to see what the world has to offer on the civilian side. I am very enthusiastic about technology especially with focus on the Geospatial Industry.

I have begun my own Google+ HangoutsOnAir series called Project Geo. Check it out the page here and watch the our show.

  • BAE Systems
    Analyst, 2014 - 2015
  • USAF - Reserves - PACOM JIOC
    Geospatial Analyst, 2012 - 2013
    I served part time as a Geospatial Analyst in the Air Force Reserves exploiting Satellite Imagery maintaining my knowledge of the Intelligence trade-craft for a year.
  • DigitalGlobe
    Business Analyst, 2013 - 2013
    As GeoEye merged with DigitalGlobe my role with the newly combined company had been remained the same. Between managing Outreach User Engagement alongside the USGIF to maintaining support with analytics expertise for multiple departments internally my job entailed ensuring the voice of the end user is heard and making sure products are evolving to improve the workflow of the customer while ensuring the products are profitable through usage.
  • GeoEye
    Business Analyst, 2012 - 2013
    After separating with the Air Force I landed a job at GeoEye. Building off my expertise from the Air Force by primary tasks were building Outreach Efforts to product users by working with the Government program office on outreach activities and the USGIF. This helped increase the adoption of the EnhancedView Web Hosting Service (EV WHS) within the defense/intelligence community. In addition I contribute to the evolving strategy for imagery dissemination through Google services such as Maps Engine and other commercial technologies. My outreach efforts are also internal as I worked with the embedded analyst teams within the GeoEye Analytics Department to ensure that they have access to imagery and other geospatial assets vital to satisfying their mission objectives with our customers.
  • USAF - Military - Pentagon
    Geospatial Analyst, 2010 - 2012
    At this point my in the Air Force I had the honor in transferring to the Pentagon working for Headquarters Air Force A2Z Office which is responsible for ISR Special Programs. While stationed here I acted as a AF liaison to National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) in which I had the honor in presenting my work to Director of NRO, USAF Special Programs Director, and 2 USDI staff members. I then transitioned to being the AF liaison to National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Geospatial Visualization Services (NGA GVS) spearheading user-engagement, training, and social media advertising on classified networks. I had already been working with the GVS team for 4 years at this point from building Google Earth best practices at Beale AFB. Another role I had was being the Geospatial SME for Air Force Crisis Action Team. It was a pleasure working at the Pentagon as I had the honor in working alongside Senior Executives in developing national level geospatial requirements and strategies involving interactions with members of multiple agencies and organization.
  • USAF - Military - Beale AFB
    Geospatial Tactician, 2007 - 2010
    As I still maintained my currency as an Imagery Analyst on the different Airborne platforms my role transitioned into improving the current mission operations by working in the Weapons and Tactics Office. My natural talent as an innovator combined with support from my leadership allowed me to revolutionize GEOINT tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the DCGS weapons system. My work gave me direct interaction with other areas of Intelligence Operations including All Source Analysis and SIGINT broadening my overall expertise. By rapidly moving the DCGS Community into cloud based reporting and dissemination I seeded the curation of modern Intelligence Collaboration through the creation of a massive Sharepoint Network, The Joint Intelligence Google Earth Working Group user community, and significantly increased awareness in Analysts of programs across the intelligence community by using early Social Media best practices.
  • USAF - Military - Beale AFB
    Imagery Analyst, 2005 - 2007
    While stations at Beale AFB my first job started out primarily as an Imagery Analyst. My role involved analyzing, distributing, and reviewing imagery derived products from the Global Hawk, U-2, and Predator ISR platforms to the war fighter and strategic partners. I gained extensive foundation experience in EO, IR, RADAR, Multi-spectral, MASINT, FMV, and GMTI.

One of the few grocery stores in North Lake but probably the only one in the Incline Village. Raley's offers a good assortment of the things you need if you are visiting locally especially at one of the Time Share resorts. Forget Sandals? They got some there too.

They have a great BBQ stand here near the Farm Stand in the Summer. Ribs just fall off the bone. Worth stopping at if you are looking for a bite to eat or fresh locally grown produce.

I went in to get some new pillows. I quickly was overwhelmed but the amount of selections that were available. I wish there was a comparative chart highlighting the differences between the options such as the thread count.Other than that the shopping experience was okay. Checkout lines are a bit slow.
