Directions Magazine

Interested in keeping up with trends in the GIS and geospatial technology industry? Then Directions Magazine may be just the ticket. This site was co-founded by Jane Elliott and her late husband Scott Elliott in 1998 "as the first entirely online geospatial publication." Here, visitors will find an array of articles, interviews, webinars (free, but may require registration), podcast episodes, and more. These resources explore a wide range of current geospatially-related topics, such as the complexities of using geospatial technology to map cultural resources and how an Austrian surveying company successfully dealt with the challenge of capturing high-precision data over a large expanse of the Alps. Menus at the top allow visitors to view content by topic or by type, and the site is searchable as well. Some of the magazine's content was published as multi-part series, which have been grouped together as Playlists. While Directions Magazine is intended primarily for GIS and geospatial professionals and educators, much of its content is largely approachable for non-experts as well. In addition to its own content, Directions Magazine also has a sizable list of publicly accessible online Data Resources.
