Open Source Climate Maps Using IPCC Data

Very nice application by Bart Römgens allowing one to visualize on maps a host of climate related variables. The maps can be animated as well to view changes over time. Visit Climatemaps.

New Los Angeles Metro Website/Trip Planner

The Los Angeles Metro opened up a new beta version of its website for public review. The map seems extremely useful and does not require a lot of drill-down to get to what you want to find out. Check it out at:

Wounded Knee: A Line in the Sand Documentary

You may wonder why I am posting about this documentary. Here's the short answer. For the last 7 years I've been working with Willard Carlson, headman of the Blue Creek Ah Pah Traditional village on the Lower Klamath River in Northern California. Willard was a participant in the 1973 American Indian Movement standoff at Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and is an active participant in the documentary. My work on the project varies from webmaster to photographer and all points in between plus creation of maps for the project. You can read more about the project, the documentary and view the trailer here.
