Just wanted to toss in my recommendation for booths. I think 1st #620,
2nd #521 with the 3rd option being #421.
Those choices will put us at the other end of the same isle that ESRI is
on and near some likely friends: Nasa (Worldwind), USGS, Census(Free
Data), and FGDC(They run Plone for their website).
