Reading blogs is a good way to stay on top of things and to know about all the newest technologies out there. I thought I would share some of my favorite GIS related blogs with you. I usually read through them at least once a week.

The Esri Blog is nice because it is very diverse and the blog entries are quite detailed, often with screen shots and click instructions. Esri has several blogs according to subjects. This one shows all entries. It´s a great way to stay on top of the many ArcGIS possibilities and a great place to get ideas for analyses.

There are several blogs regarding free geographic software as well. The Free Geography Tools blog gives a good overview about what is available and it is fun to test the tools demonstrated.

Of course there are also the blogs related to Google Earth and Google Maps. Some interesting ones are Google Maps Mania, Google Lat Long and the Google Earth Blog.

Map Hawk is interesting blog to follow as well. This one is about the way the media uses maps. It´s good for getting some ideas about how to publish maps and in which format.

To have some fun and to inspire some cool ideas, check out the Strange Maps blog.
