Power Map is looking pretty powerful!

I watched a presentation today about some of the new features of Power Map. I was impressed, and the surprising thing is that the data does not have to be location data to get a 3D visualisation. All that is needed is to establish a co-ordinate system and any data can be transformed … and it can even have a time dimension!

It can do some visualisations that are just not possible with Visio, but I could see that Visio could be used to feed custom maps to Power Map with base layers and a co-ordinate system.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
