3D terrains with Cesium
Previously, I’ve used three.js to create 3D terrain maps in the browser ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ). It worked great for smaller areas, but three.js doesn’t have built-in support for tiling and advanced LOD algorithms needed to render large terrains. So I dec...

New trip report around a 15-mile day hike with Trail-Son along the Sentinel Hills to Jefferson Park in the Willamette National Forest. Some experimentation with #GIS  involved as well!

Thanks to +GEIGERRIG, I am now the proud owner of a 3L Hydration Engine and In-Line Virus Filter. Bluntly, it is awesome, and I can't wait to hit some lengthy hikes with them. 
How much does  GeigerRig  rule the hydration pack world? All the way! The customer service is amazing, both my little children can work the hydration engine out of the package, and it looks durable...

One of the great technical benefits behind writing up trip reports @ http://trail-dad.com is the motivation for me to get back behind the wheel of +QGIS. This screenshot shows how I definitively determine which ecoregions our hikes occur within via data from the EPA and the USGS (assuming my projections are in order!).
