Further GIS Info
- To find out more about other aspects of the Illinois GIS you can go to the Illinois Natural Resources Geospatial Data Clearinghouse, developed and maintained by the Illinois Geological Survey.
- ArchNet has many good pointers to Map Libraries, GIS, and Mapping Software.
- As archaeology is a primary research topic of our lab, we like to keep up with discussions on the GISARCH email list.
- A very large (although unorganized) set of GIS links. Somehow associated with GIS World.
- Web GIS: Toy or Tool?
- The RSL at the University of Minnesota maintains a GIS job clearing house and archives of several GIS-related mailing lists.
- If you send an empty email message to email@example.com you will get back instructions on how to get several types of information via email. These include:
- The GIS FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
- A listing of commercial and public domain software packages
- Probably more, but I haven't looked lately.
- Much of the GIS work here is concerned with data that not only has a spatial component, but also has a strong and important temporal component. As this is the case, I am gathering information on temporal aspects in GIS.
- The HyperNews Forum of the AAG GIS Speciality Group at Ohio State has some information. (It is also an interesting use of HyperNews)
- I don't know if it has been completed, but there is a note describing the Historical Geographic Information System for China at CIESIN.\
- There are archived messages for the GIS in Archaeology discussion list.
- A nice FAQ of GIS.
- Oliver Weatherbee, of the University of Delaware, maintains a list of GIS software reviews.
- ESRI, the developers of Arc/Info, including FAQs from the Tech Support folks.
