I'm sure I'm not the only one that is running into problems accessing data due the the government shutdown. Luckily I have most of the data that I need for my most recent freelance project. However, I am missing some essential data that I would usually download from the USGS (MRLC- landcover) and Census (TIGER - road/water data) websites. I was happy to see that USGS's Earth Explorer is still up.

 

I've learned that some Census TIGER data is available at:

Any other websites that have backups of data?
