comment What books, journals, and electronic resources are most valuable for expanding knowledge of GIS?
@radek do you mind if I edit the question, or you can do it if you so desire, to consolidate the answers into one post / initial question submission?

comment Dealing with bridges and tunnels when modeling raster least cost paths?
@whuber I guess I was referring to vehicle tunnels that go under a river, through a mountain or under a busy business / downtown core. Peds are not usually allowed in those high speed long facilities

comment Dealing with bridges and tunnels when modeling raster least cost paths?
I agree and think it is a pure vector problem. The rasters should only be used to find routes that are not represented via vectors. Add to that most tunnels don't allow pedestrians.

comment Free GIS workshops, tutorials, and applied learning material
@radek I was thinking more along the lines of existing documentation that individuals can download and do on their own free time. But if it's forthcoming and the material will be available for download later then I see no issue with that.

comment How to sum area of polygons by values occuring in multiple fields?
using an ORM like geoalchemy, how would you build the same query? I know it's a follow up question, but I think it's somewhat related to the OP's
