We know it is crunch time for many GIS students out there as the semester is nearing the end so try Natural Earth for obtaining Free GIS Data (that’s right Free!) for areas beyond Connecticut. Natural Earth is an online GIS data warehouse which includes public domain map dataset at 1:10m, 1:50m, and 1:110m scales. Data appears to have both a United States and International focus with cultural, physical and raster datasets. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate based upon our exploration of the site. Check out this site and let us know what you think!
