GeoPrac.net celebrates another anniversary!7 years ago today, I wrote my first post for GeoPrac.net! It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for that long. I am grateful for all of the visitors, twitter followers, supporters, and of course sponsors that have made it possible for me to share high-quality news and articles for geoprofessionals. I look forward to another great 7 years.

Last year I highlighted a few of my favorite articles and blog posts. This year, I thought I would just go by the numbers to see what the most popular articles and posts have been over the years. Check it out.
