Everyone is wanting to model things these days and you are going to need a skeleton to hang all of your project information on, and so in walks your GIS data. It all looks great on the screen when someone else does it but where do you go to get your data to start your project from? During the Autodesk University Infrastructure Symposium today three great resources were mentioned: USGS, WeoGeo, and DigitalGlobe. Add them to your bookmarks and next time you need some GIS take a look at what they have to offer!
Are there other resources that you have used? Please share your experiences in the comments.
