GLIN SITE OF THE MONTH for February
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources web site contains more
than 10,000 pages of information about Minnesota's natural resources and
MN DNR programs, publications and activities. The most popular pages on
the site are the "Lake Finder" and the "Recreation Compass," which
feature an interactive map interface for accessing Lake Survey reports,
lake maps, state parks and other recreation information. Also popular is
a new section on the site called "Current Conditions," which features
weather information for more than 90 locations in Minnesota, snow depth
reports and weekly updates on snowmobile and ski trail conditions.
If your agency is interested in being GLIN Site of the Month, see
http://www.great-lakes.net/sitemont.html for more details.
A complete list and brief descriptions of all GLIN email lists are now
available at http://www.great-lakes.net/lists/listlist.html
If you're interested in creating a new Great Lakes email listserv, send
requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Some general guidelines: 1) The list must be for the regional good (i.e., it must
involve parties from the Great Lakes states and/or benefit the region as a whole);
and 2) A critical amount of people should be involved to make it worthwhile
to create a list (20-30 people is the minimum).
A permanent link has been added to the Great Lakes Radio Consortium
archives under "Hot Topics" on each GLIN page. The GLRC is an
environmental news feed, produced by radio producers from around the Great
Lakes, that is inserted into the news programming of local stations. GLRC
stories are carried by more than 100 stations in nine states, Ontario, and
several nationally syndicated shows.
Proceedings of the Great Lakes GIS Online workshop held at the University of
Chicago's Gleacher Center on Dec. 9-10, 1998, are online at http://www.great-lakes.net/gis/proceed2.pdf
Also, a "gis-online" email list has been established to allow the region's Geographic
Information Systems (GIS) users and practitioners to share insights and tips, ask
questions and notify others of meetings, new resources, etc. To subscribe or for
further information, contact <email@example.com>
