Ou! Conceptually this is really intriguing!  Thoughts?

These maps of water use show why the Western US is in trouble
“The American West has been wrestling with drought for the past 15 years. California is now facing its worst dry spell in at least a century. So, not surprisingly, the question of how best to manage America’s scarce freshwater supplies is coming up more frequently.
To that end, the Hamilton Project recently published a helpful primer, “Nine Economic Facts about Water in the United States.” The whole thing’s worth reading, but four maps and charts in particular stuck out. For starters, some of the driest states in the West actually have some of the highestrates of household water use.”

Prepping for class this Wednesday! Will be teaching the class about utilizing the XY Event Layer tool in our intro to GIS spatial analysis class. Loving the ease of use with this ESRI workbook!

3D printed maps could help the blind navigate their city
Modern technology has turned many of the things we consume from physical objects into pixels on a screen. While this has benefited the majority of us, those with sight difficulties don’t get along well with visual stimuli or touchscreen devices. In the past, we’ve seen Yahoo! Japan develop Hands On Search, a project that lets blind kids carry out web searches with 3D printed results. Now the country’s governmental department GSI is creating software that will enable those with visual impairments to print out 3D versions of online maps. READ MORE…


That’s really a great idea
