The Cartography blog has a listing of free Canadian geospatial data sources. See http://ccablog.blogs...accessible.html.

It would be helpful to somehow organize all of the free GIS data links in a searchable database, so that if we are looking for something it is easier to find. I am not offering to do this, but someone else may want to if they have the time. If not a database, then even a pinned link on CartoTalk with links categorized by country/state/province would be very helpful.

This is something I have been thinking about as well and am planning on adding as soon as I have some extra time :blink:

Gillian,

Good point. In fact, one of the things we have tried to do with the Custom Cartographic Companies thread is keep it more organised so it's easier to retrieve information. This thread served as an example of what we didn't want it to become <_<

Nick,

Extra time... that's something that other people have, right?

ESRI now has a service to help find that elusive local government data that's hiding in remote corners of local government websites:

Since we have now added the Links area to the site I am closing this thread so we don't have things in 2 places.
