The Washington DRG locator is a decent resource when users can easily go in, click on a map, and download a DRG. Simply click the keymap to reveal a lengthy listing of all the quads available for the sector you selected. Files are ZIP compressed and you can easily move up to the parent and grab all the data in one swoop.

Ya i know, you might be thinking, what, another resource listing free GIS data resources?? You betcha… but not just “another” site full of links…. since I’ve got access to a wealth of contacts and data links via the years that I’ve been managing and running popular GIS news portals I’m now pleased to share with the GIS user community a collection of all the best places to access and download free GIS data… enjoy and please be sure to suggest resources if you think they should be listed here.
I was just surfing youtube and found a 7 minute video from the ESRI UC. The video was posted by a group that calls themselves gisnation (sorry but I’m not familiar with them – think veryspatial knock-off!). Anyway, 3 gisers offer up a 7 minute take on the conference from the comfort of their hotel room (actually it looks like a motel) One funny bit though is their reference to “creepy cello guy”… if you were at the event and walked around the upper level you may have seen this guy and yes indeed, he was a bit creepy! The cello playinng was pretty nice but the whole package was definitely creepy. Made me think of middle age Fabio crossed with Mick Jager, gone classical! Anyway, turns out “cello guy” is actually a pro and has his own website etc… if you want more info about cello guy see Marston Smith’s website at http://www.marstonsmith.com/main.html – if you want to see the ESRI videoblog see youtube and search “gisnation”
In case any readers of Planet Geospatial are wondering why all of a sudden all the posts from my anygeo blog have reapeared it’s likely due to the fact that i just “upgrade” the blog to blogger beta. Apparently it recreated/republished everything and as a result planet geo reindexed a bunch of posts as if they were new. James, sorry about that and hopefully the migration doesn’t freak out anything else… a good test i guess!
