Mappers welcome new access rules and tools for Spatial Data

ONSW mapping guru Russell Rigby just passed on details of an trans-government initiative to release spatial data freely under a creative commons license. The new model helps Australia catch up with other nations in terms of open access to geo-spatial data.

SSS 10 Hunts Creek - Results

Thanks for battling the horrible Sydney traffic to get to the event today. Its a great area for those who got there - plenty of bush, quiet streets and the locals are friendly and sometimes even have a crack at orienteering.

Australian Champs - far away, over the Queensland border

Despite the predations suffered at the recent Easter carnival in Queensland, a hardcore group of Big Feet ventured back up over the border. Wins to Tracy Marsh, Eoin Rothery and Jockus Dockus were just the crowning jewels on a number of great results. Here are the top 5 placings that Big Feet snaffled:

Long Champs

1 Eoin Rothery M60A 50:01    
2 Jock Davis M45A 58:31 +6:22  
4 Nea Shingler W12A 19:03 +2:03  
4 Alastair George M16A 47:14 +5:10

IOF invites Australia to organise World Ski-O after NSW Ski-O

The idea of snow in Australia seems to have attracted attention from the IOF, whose article on the Big Foot organised NSW Ski-O champs finishes with a suggestion that Australia organise the World Ski-O champs. This is a brave, nay audacious, suggestion by the IOF, in line with the 2010 Smiggin Holes Winter Olympics bid by sports supremos Roy & HG.

Fatso the wombat has so far been unavailable for comment.
