I realized recently that I had accumulated a lot of data sources for geospatial data and I felt like bringing them all together. Here is the initial batch focusing on US Government sources. There are many more and if I have the time maybe I will make a webpage on this topic. There is tons of data out there the government offers and they are freely available. Much of it is unorganized so unless you know where to look it can be hard to find. I will add more as I have the time to syphon through what I have but feel free to comment if you have any additions. Once again, this post is focused on Government Geospatial Data.

You Need to Circle More People!

If you've signed up for Google+, but you don't really understand what it's all about, and you're probably not going to use it much any more since none of your friends are here...

You need to circle more people.

Once you circle 500-1000 active Google+ers, everything will change. You'll see how this place is really buzzing with activity, and you won't be able to resist jumping into the conversations. Then you'll get it.

So, here are some suggestions on how to get more great people into your circles.

1. Search Google+ for circles.

Click on the "Search Google+" box, and put in "Shared a circle with you". That'll display all the shared circles. Include a keyword to get even more specific results:

"shared a circle with you" pets
"shared a circle with you" photography

Import those circles.

2. Search regular Google for circles.

I've done a few tests, and regular Google search (http://www.google.com) is actually more comprehensive for finding circles. Again, do the same queries:

"shared a circle with you" skiiing

Import more circles.

3. Search Google+ for people who match your interests.

Just do some searches on Google+ for topics that interest you. Then look through the recent posts for people talking about those subjects. Circle them.

4. Check out the Public Circles Database.
http://publiccircles.appspot.com/

This is a comprehensive list of 1400+ circles shared by people in Google+. You can search and filter it for various topics that interest you.

Import some more circles.


At this point, you should have 500-1000 circles of active Google+ users. You streams should now be buzzing with activity. Next you'll want to actually engage and start making friends, but that's a whole other conversation.

KQED SCIENCE originally shared:
 
“We’re still trying to get our heads around what this means,” Dr. Raskar said, “because no one has been able to see the world in this way before.”

MIT Media Lab researchers have created a new imaging system that can acquire visual data at a rate of one trillion frames per second. That's fast enough to produce a slow-motion video of light traveling through objects.

Add +Monterey Bay Aquarium to your science circles!

Did you know that tuna are some of the largest and fastest fish in the ocean? We recently added six to our Open Sea exhibit, including four bluefin and two yellowfin. These are some of the largest tunas we've ever transported! http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/efc/open_sea.aspx

This is a fun new development
Google Maps originally shared:
 
Today, Google Maps is entering a new frontier: mapping the indoors. As part of this morning’s launch of Google Maps 6.0 for Android, you can use your phone to see detailed floor plans of airports, malls, large stores, and other public spaces; get a more accurate location indoors; and find your way around large buildings. The familiar ‘blue dot’ can show you where you are indoors and automatically detect what floor you’re on. And it’s all seamlessly integrated into Google Maps for Android.

To watch the overview video -- http://youtu.be/Gy-DI_bWElg
To play with a demo -- visit maps.google.com/indoor
To read the full announcement -- http://goo.gl/HdI3R
To download the update from Android Market -- http://goo.gl/EFgwH

There is still plenty to share. Check back throughout today for lots of screenshots, more videos, and more information about indoor Google Maps and Google Maps 6.0 for Android.

First, google made it impossible to ask anyone about almost anything, "Are you lazy or something? Google it!" Now, you can't even ask for the closest toilet.

What's the purpose of this shark's "hammerhead?" Scientists aren't sure, but they suspect it supplies added lift and lets them make sharper turns than other sharks. You can learn more about all our sharks at Shark Days, Feb. 11-12! Click here to learn more: http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/vi/vi_events/vi_events_shark_days.aspx

Fantastic photo of the Mount St. Helens devastated area nearly 30 years after the 1980 explosive eruption, taken by +Ron Schott. Check out this link for more info on Mount St. Helens, including photos from the more recent eruptive events: http://vulcan.wr.usgs.gov/Volcanoes/MSH/framework.html

This is my first gallery on the new GigaPan website. It consists of ten GigaPans I shot in the blast zone north of Mount St. Helens in August 2009.

+Matthew Long has it. While both places experience earthquakes related to volcanism, they are caused by different types of volcanism and the tectonic setting in each location is different. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is a spreading center where two plates are being pulled apart, while the Hawaiian hotspot is located within the Pacific plate, well away from any plate boundary. The string of islands and sea mounts off to the west-northwest track the movement of the plate over the stationary hotspot over time. If you are REALLY curious, +Daniel Jones, we can get into the geochemical differences between the two lava types, and then compare them both to continental lava chemistry at some of the southern Cascade volcanoes. =) This is usually the part when everyone runs away in terror...

Who's up for a field trip?

...and yes, +Chris Lake , earthquake insurance is kind of expensive here! But your continent looks fairly stable.
