A light-hearted blog about all things geomatic as seen through the filter of Ruth Adams, a chartered surveyor. It won't be comprehensive, it'll be hydro biased but, hey, it may make you smile ;-)

Oceanography Library Goes Digital
OK, a bit behind the news here but worth reporting albeit a few months late. Reported in Marine Data news in June.
"Approximately 100,000 volumes from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library, the world’s largest oceanography library, have been digitised and are being made publically accessible as part of a partnership between Google, the University of California and the UC San Diego Libraries."
And here we go - the library itself. Wow, you could virtually lose yourself in here...
