GIS Links

Here is the second installment from my Favorites folder. This time I’m looking through the folder of GIS links. I guess it’s been quite a long time since I’ve looked through these links and cleaned them out, because there are millions of them (not really), and some of them are worthless.

As a little disclaimer, since I live and work in Washington State, a lot of my data links are for Washington State. Sorry to all of you looking for stuff on, say, Zimbabwe, or something. The links are split up by general topic, but I haven’t put them in any further order than that. Hopefully I will eventually annotate all of these, so that you don’t have to visit them to see exactly what they are, and to give you some idea how good the sites are.
