North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park

Last month Sonoma County Regional Parks opened up to the public the latest regional park - North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park. With the opening of this park we get another North Bay map. You can view the map in PDF form on the North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park page.

This new park includes 4 more additional miles added to the Bay Area Ridge Trail and connects to Jack London State Historic Park. To learn more about the Bay Area Ridge Trail go to http://www.ridgetrail.org.

Napa Valley Vintners Map

There is a new interactive map for our region. This one was created by Axis Maps for the Napa Valley Vintners. To view the map go to http://napavintners.com/maps/.

Axis Maps also has a blog post about some of the design workarounds to get it to work in the mobile environment.

Thanks for a great Mappy Hour!

On Wednesday, January 28th we had our first Mappy Hour at Griffin Map Design. Esther Mandeno of Digital Mapping Solutions did a great write-up on it at http://digitalmappingsolutions.com/2015/01/30/mappy-hour/. So rather than repeating her words we are just going to say thanks to all who attended and look for another one in the months ahead.

Come join us for our first ever Mappy Hour!

You might be asking yourself, "What is Mappy Hour?" Mappy Hour is an opportunity for GIS and Mapping folks to get together for a good time... and talk maps.

So come join us at Griffin Map Design in Petaluma on Wednesday, January 28th from 6-8PM. Our host Scott Lowrie will be giving an introduction to Mappy Hour and Griffin Map Design. Then Kevin Lacefield will give a short talk about what the upcoming year will hold for the North Bay GIS Users Group.
