    Exploring all aspects of mapping and geography, from field data collection, to mapping and analysis, to integration, applications development, enterprise architecture and policy

I just finished reading through Spatial Portals: Gateways to Geographic Information. The book did a great job of presenting some case studies shedding light on how various enterprises have integrated geospatial data and intelligence using portals, along with other architectural solutions. The case studies presented in the book are listed below, along with URLs, technical details on infrastructure, and some of the interesting/unique points I came away with for each:
