    Compare and contrast several products intended for geospatial visualization (e.g., a map to embed in a blog or PowerPoint, or for a poster session) and in some cases for GIS data analysis. (1) ArcGIS Online: Companion to the ArcGIS client that allows members of a group to store and share spatial data online, and that can be used independently or in conjunction with the client; (2) GeoCommons: both a repository for spatial data as well as an analysis and visualization tool; (3) Google Earth: emphasis on its features that are most applicable in an academic setting. See our schedule for another session on Google Fusion Tables.
