Google now providing Google Earth Pro for Free | GIS | Scoop.it
Google Earth, a virtual 3D mapping and geographical information software package (originally known as EarthViewer 3D) provided free by Google has been one of the key elements over the past few years that has helped people become more aware of the geomatics industry. The Google Earth Pro version contains all the features and the same imagery data sets as the regular Google Earth version does, but includes more advanced functionality and until now users had to pay a fee to use the Pro version, but now users will be able to use Google Earth Pro for free.

Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP)

Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP) | GIS | Scoop.it
Over the past few years the term GISP (geographic information systems professional) has become pretty popular as more and more geospatial professionals look for a way to demonstrate that they have become more established in their geomatics careers. 

A GISP is a certification status awarded to a geographic information systems (GIS) professional who has met the minimum standards for ethical conduct and professional practice as established by the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI). Thousands of professionals in GIS & Geomatics (mostly in the US) have obtained certification and are currently making the most of it to help achieve career aspirations.

Should you apply for a GISP?
