US Govt and Geospatial

Pulled the following from Ed Parson blog:

From the FAQ of the Obama administrations new website launched today..

“What are some resources for viewing geospatial datasets?

The geospatial datasets available on are provided in up to three open file formats: Keyhole Markup Language (KML), Compressed Keyhole Markup Language (KMZ) and ESRI Shapefile. These datasets are all viewable in many commercial and freely available applications. More information about Geographic Information System (GIS) software can be found by doing a web search.”
