GreenInfo Network’s CPAD has been updated and is ready for download or use through a web service – go to www.CALands.org for details. The new data set expands the number of agencies with holdings to almost 1,000 and adds significantly in San Diego County, plus many other improvements. This data version (CPAD 2013b) also has more detailed subtypes for agencies (you can now query for “Land Trusts” and other sub types), and an initial default Gap (biodiversity) rank field. You can review and comment on the data, and take a simple online evaluation survey at www.CALands.org/revise. Questions? Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s why Iceland is one of the most amazing places on Earth: It is the only spot where a mid-ocean ridge can be seen above water. Check out the cool map and notebooks too.

Interesting maps showing broadcast areas for NFL, College Football, and MLB games.
Thanks goes to Tom Lutgen at Burbank Water & Power for finding this site. He poses the question “Interesting to see the market boundaries for each team – like, why is San Diego the only SoCal market to get the Atlanta-Miami game on Fox? Advertising bucks at play I suppose”.
Last year, a pair of researchers from Duke University published a report with a bold title: “The End of the Segregated Century.” U.S. cities, the authors concluded, were less segregated in 2012 than they had been at any point since 1910. But less segregated does not necessarily mean integrated–something this incredible map makes clear in vivd color. Read the Wired article here.
Thanks to Mike Mercurio’s GIS student Alexi Elconin for finding this one!
