News from the GIS Colorado listserve:

Below is a link to a PDF I put together with addresses for 40+ federal ArcGIS servers with open MapServer and ImageServer data.  If you know of other federal ArcGIS servers with open data then please let me know and I will add them to the list.  And if you know about a similar federal GIS server list that anyone has assembled then please point me in their direction so we can compare notes.

Thanks Joseph!  Very helpful.

Along these lines we write about spatial data every week on http://spatialreserves.wordpress.com

… including review of maps and sites such as this one that says it is a list of all open data portals around the world:   https://spatialreserves.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/a-one-stop-shop-list-of-all-open-data-portals-around-the-world/
and archives of free data such as this:    https://spatialreserves.wordpress.com/?s=free+gis

So, I’d like to add the Spatial Reserves blog as a “meta” resource for your excellent list if possible.
