Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to provide readers with a succinct, but varied list of resources for obtaining geographic information (GI) for use, analyses, and geovisualization. We necessarily limit this list to authoritative outlets, such as those from federal, state, and local organizations, as well as private data vendors that are actively engaged in secondary data markets. To facilitate description, data types are subdivided into the 16 National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) themes identified by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). Fitness for use, as a concept, is detailed and an example is provided using telecommunications data.
