It was a LONG week at Strong Angel III (http://www.strongangel3.net). It is demonstration events like this that remind you just how important having maps is. Everyone, rightly so, wants to get their data and analysis on a map so that people know where things are happening - and what they are near. And paper - digital mapping is great, but in crunch time the good ole paper map is still very much needed. The whole group was very happy to see ESRI roll in 2 huge HP 4000ps large-format printers on the second day. We became very popular as everyone needed to print, but no one had a printer. And, as always, the Touch Table with ArcGlobe drew a crowd. It got a workout. I thought I'd place links to stories and blog entries about the event here. Enjoy...... http://iht.com/articles/2006/08/28/business/disaster.php (8/28/06) http://picasaweb.google.com/sanjanah/StrongAngelIII (Photos someone took) http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=3545 (8/25/06) http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1690083/posts (8/25/06) http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20060823/ news_1m23terror.html (8/23/06) http://www.informationweek.com/security/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=192202134 (8/21/06) http://www.govtech.net/magazine/channel_story.php/100561 (8/14/06) http://www.spadac.com/ (These guys do some really interesting spatial analysis - we talked and worked with them a lot this last week) http://ict4peace.wordpress.com/2006/08/25/strong-angel-iii-real-time-broadcast-video-translation/ (8/25/06) http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=60218675&blogID=159965120 (8/25/06) http://psdblog.worldbank.org/psdblog/2006/08/scenarios_disas.html (8/25/06) http://ict4peace.wordpress.com/2006/08/25/strong-angel-iii-interview-with-ambassador-daniel-stauffacher/ (8/25/06) http://ict4peace.wordpress.com/2006/08/25/strong-angel-iii-interview-with-dan-gilmor/ (8/25/06) http://ict4peace.wordpress.com/2006/08/25/strong-angel-iii-interview-with-mark-frohardt-from-internews/ (8/25/06) http://drastic-sa3.blogspot.com/2006/08/monday-day-1-resurrection.html (8/22/06) http://www.brianstorms.com/archives/000699.html (8/21/06)
