Found this interesting digital map of San Francisco in the David Rumsey Map Collection. It was a massive wooden model of San Francisco that has not been on display in one piece since 1942. The 158 pieces that create a 42×38 foot model of the city were digitally photographed and pieced together to create one big mosaic image. The model represented the city as it was in 1940.

This year the ArcGIS User Seminar will be in the SoCal area this Thursday in Glendale. This free half-day seminar basically covers what’s new in ArcGIS software and demonstrates tips and tricks, use cases, and gives you a vision and techniques for maximizing the potential of your GIS. Check it out.
