I was "lucky" enough to experience the Northridge quake in '95, which was a mere 6.8 and 29 seconds (IIRC). I can't even imagine what a 9 must feel like, for as long as that went on. And of course natural disasters are even more disastrous nowadays, with our huge population.

Now, what is this MapPoint? Is it for GPS or GIS (or both)? I'm currently working on a GIS certificate, and haven't heard of it (our school uses ESRI).
