I don't think its in any question whether or not any laws were broken, William's question eludes to is it moral to do it just because one can?
Well, truthfully, its not. I'm also glad to see the link he posted concerning the federally funded program to combat this problem. I was just
reading an article in "Erosion Control" magazine about mapping the greatlakes coastline in Michigan using LIDAR which for what I've seen is the
best way to monitor such problems.
its just so very interesting to see someone with such environmental liberal leanings attack another entity in the same camp. I agree this study
isn't the most scientific (Calicoastline) and may not even be ran by actual scientist. But in most activist groups, actual science isn't often the
most concentrated on variable, politics is. I just can't help but think this would have been a non-issue had Babs not ran up the red flag which
leads me to believe she isn't at all heartbroken about all the press she's gotten fom this. I just hope she's ready to take on any entity thats
ever made a map using a sat photo or aerial photography of her area because California is home to ESRI, the king of GIS and you can bet her house is
on countless other digital ortho photo quarter quadrangles. So, I'll let this go with that and I guess we'll all see what litigation results.
