I will soon be archiving this listing and removing the cache now that I know how much disturbance is being caused by caching activities and the proximity of this cache to known habitat of the Pink-tailed Worm-lizard. I will also be encouraging other owners of caches in The Pinnacle to review any ...

Ugh, coastline and estuary delineation ... I don't think Google got it right with the Susitna River in Alaska.

There's that too, although I think Google is way off with claiming "coastline" 120 km inland. Around the mouth of the river where freshwater mixes with salt, yes I can understand some fuzziness but this is erroneous by a significant amount.

After the disappointment with maps the last few overseas trips I'm making my own from scratch for key locations, in this case Windfall Harbour south of Juneau where we'll be kayaking to Pack Creek to see bears.

Background is a 1952 raster topo map downloaded through http://viewer.nationalmap.gov/ converted from GeoPDF to GeoTIFF in QGIS and then the polys, ways and points traced in MapWel and exported straight to Garmin IMG.

If you want to know why the surround on my eTrex 30 looks odd: http://www.purecaffeine.com/blog/photography/replacing-the-screen-on-my-garmin-etrex-30/

My more elaborate though less elegant take on Damien Newman's "design squiggle". Design is a process, yes, but it's not a nice clean flowchart. It's moving from a start of "bits and pieces", pulling things together, synthesising information from a bunch of sources, branching off on tangents to explore ideas and concepts through sketching, prototyping and testing before finally reaching a point where you stop and say: This is it. This is the design. For now.

Inspired by maps of watersheds where small streams start in the headwaters and gradually come together forming creeks and then rivers before finally uniting as a single body of water.

This is pretty cool, Ampere, tells you charge rate for USB charger and cable so you can tell if you've got a crappy charger or cable and which ones are the best

Has anyone else come across this issue? Perhaps the way sharing works in Google Drive makes sense to you?
I've been using Google Drive for a few years but this is the first time I've come across this issue with sharing and after searching on Google it seems this design flaw has been around for a while. It's not a functional defect in that you can still share folders and files, bring them into your ...

If  you've done some decent hikes and have GPX files lying around you should totally go play with Dorama. It's an interactive 3D visualisation of GPS logged activities.

Here's one I made a few months ago from a hike down near Michelago in Tinderry Nature Reserve.
3D GPS track visualization for the web.

As long as the wetland looks pretty and also attracts ducks from time to time, it is regarded as a complete success. An attractive appearance is fine and is of considerable concern in urban developments.

It is the pretense that such wetlands also create rich habitats which is objectionable, when urban development is the primary cause of loss of diversity in a wide range of ecosystems around cities including wetlands.

The one ecologically positive thing that most created wetlands do a reasonable job of is water treatment, because the limited range of plants likely to survive the semi-toxic soils and waters of newly created wetlands are invariably colonisers that will also use up a wide range of nutrients.

Introduction
I have worked in website and web application design for 16 years and have a wide range of experience across industry sectors in e-commerce, mobile apps, government websites and complex business productivity web software with dashboards, multi-channel communication, inter-organisational and systems integration.

In addition to my user experience design and usability skills and experience I bring my enthusiasm for solving complex design challenges and a desire for sustainable solutions and ethical design.

Wireframes, mockups and prototypes are an important part of what I deliver but my real value is diving deep into opportunities, seeking to understand what people and users expect, their behaviours, attitudes and stories through data analysis, surveys, interviews and user testing.

My interests include cartography and GIS, topographic surveying, applied ecohydrology, natural resource management and habitat regeneration. I'm also an OpenStreetMap contributor and enjoy hiking outdoors, geocaching and photographing landscapes and nature.

I'm a qualified native wildlife rescue and rehabilitation volunteer with ACT Wildlife and I foster and rehome dogs with the Riverina and District Animal Rescue (RADAR). I'm also a volunteer with ParkCare group Friends of the The Pinnacle and help manage and restore the nature reserve which is part of the Canberra Nature Park network. I'm also interesting in self-sufficiency and urban homesteading.

I've previously been involved with the OpenAustralia Foundation, BarCamp and TEDx.

These guys are great. Someone gave me a lime tree from Glenbog which died on me - quite possibly my fault, but they replaced it and gave me another one which is pretty damn awesome.

A cool little second hand book store absolutely jam packed. I was mainly interested in horticulture and landscaping which there was little of at least according to the eclectic categorisation but I still picked up something. Fun for a browse, just watch your head! He seems to have a good collection of military books, Australian history especially local / Canberra ACT and parenting. But it's all mangled together so hard to tell.

Absolutely delicious, best Indian we've had in a while and the staff are fantastic. Himalayas on Colombo Street is now a regular spot for us for takeaway Indian.

Very reasonable call-out and hourly rates, explained the fault (dead fan-forced oven element) and why it had happened and got a replacement part in from Melbourne and installed it within a week. Happy with service and outcome and would recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience touring the zoo and playing with the lemurs. It looks like a small reserve on a map but they've done a fantastic job of making it feel expansive. Remember, don't look the lemurs in the eye!
