    If you are using ESRI products, you should bookmark this site. It is full of information for solving technical problems, and has a very active user community.
  • ESRI GIS Glossary
    The glossary is helpful when you don't understand the terms used in the help menu or other technical information.
  • Glossary of Cartographic Terms
    Another good source for definitions.
  • Coordinate System Overview
    A good basic overview of coordinate systems written for GIS users.
  • Metadata in Plain Language
    Metadata is a critical component of good spatial data, but it isn't always easy to decipher. This site 'translates' FGDC standard metadata into a more readable format.
