a little less SimCity

USA Today mentioned that the Washington, DC, government had created a SimCity-looking webmap of the Mall. It's interesting, but only 1% of what's over at Edushi. (see my Jan 28 post for more on Edushi)

Also, Karl Grossner at UCSB sent me a note about Leica Geosystems. They have a demo online for their Leica Virtual Explorer. I downloaded the client, but could not get their demo data to run. The client default loads as a globe, but other options are available. Anybody seen this thing in action?
