Do you feel that you’re too serious about your GIS work? Take a break and enjoy:
“G-I-S State of Mind” is a fun take set to the song “Empire State of Mind” originally by Jay-Z, Featuring Alicia Keys. Created by GIS folks from Austin, Texas in honor of GIS Day in 2010, the video features singing by globes (a la Jack from the fast food chain), one wearing a strand of pearls. Sitting in front of computers displaying GIS software and plotters, the globes launch into lyrics that include the following:
Our maps will inspire you, Let’s hear it for G-I-Yeah
(C’mon, You’re welcome, Mercator)
“Furious” at Esri Software
A few years ag0 hilarious videos, using a scene from the 2004 film Downfall about the final days of Hitler’s life in the Berlin bunker, made the rounds, including one mocking Esri’s software. Using subtitles to “translate” the German dialogue, Hitler erupts in fury upon learning that GIS data was corrupted by ArcSDE.
