Map Maker but not Google’s

23 07 2008

While searching for urban area datasets I stumbled upon nationalatlas.gov which provides a whole host of information for the US. Examples include boundaries for counties, states, urban areas along with roads, railways and even time series data such as crime and population levels. All of this data can be viewed in your web browser in their easy to use interface Map Maker but much better than this it can all be downloaded as shapefiles and imported into Qgis or other GIS programs. Perhaps some of this data can even be uploaded to OpenStreetMap.
