Declan Butler surveys file conversion tools

Declan Butler, Paris-based reporter at Nature, is starting to blog more GIS-related topics. His latest post surveys all the different file formats out there for geographical data, and the conversion tools that have sprung up to bring existing information into Google Earth.

This reminds me above all that I need to re-categorize the past 6 months’ worth of posts on this blog into a far more useful system. Peppered over the past several months’ blogging are several more conversion tools, some of them websites, some of them scripts to make WMS servers accessible to Google Earth. I’m going to need a quiet afternoon this Christmas holidays to make that and other changes to this site. In the meantime, search is your friend.
