Michelle Kinzel, senior media specialist, Center for Image Processing in Education, Tucson, Arizona, takes a break from data collection to admire a mother and calf gray whale pair in San Ignacio Lagoon, Baja California, Mexico. She is wearing a shirt from the Society for Conservation GIS (designed by Esri). As a GIS analyst for the conservation-based Coastal Ecosystems Research Foundation (British Columbia, Canada), Michelle analyzes animal movements and habitat usage by these migratory cetaceans.

Ziad Mazboudi, senior civil engineer and environmental programs manager, city of San Juan Capistrano, California, recently visited China for 10 days to visit his son, a University of Southern California foreign exhange student at Beijing University. Among the highlights of the trip are the visit to the Great Wall, the forbidden city, and the Shanghai Urban Planning Center. The center had some excellent examples of GIS mapping of past, present, and future of Shanghai, a great metropolitan city. The Pearl TV tower in Shanghai proved to be a great backdrop for photographing his Esri T-shirt.

Bonnie Woodward, graphics technician, Planning Department, city of Burlington, Ontario, Canada, snowboarded Snowbird, which is a mountain in Utah. She tells us that she is pictured here warming up by a fire after going over the top of the mountain in 17 degree C temperature at 11,000 feet into a ravine of ice and snow. She had to take her board off and walk over rocks and through trees to get to safety. At least her Esri T-shirt offered some padding!

Derek Bedarf, GIS specialist, county of Albemarle, Virginia, says, "My wife took this picture of me while snorkeling in western Barbados. We were just south of Holetown, near the hotel resort of Sandy Lane. I wore the shirt so I wouldn't overheat with the sun beating down." We're glad his Esri T-shirt could be of service!

Frank S. Razem, specialist geographer associate, South Florida Water Management District, says that the district's GIS user group held its May 2005 meeting in the field in preparation for hurricane season. The group combined emergency operations and GPS training with a geocaching exercise along the banks of the historic Kissimmee River and its floodplain just north of Lake Okeechobee in South Florida. Alas, this big oak didn't make it through the season. Top row, left to right: Matt Hinton, Anand Trivedi, Cheryl McDow, Sharon Wallace, Tim Minter, and Frank Razem.
