Comments/ Evaluation of Key Sites

Boulder County Land Use GIS
Data and maps are not on line, but the program is well described. A demo selects and discusses a series of 12 interesting maps from projects.
A key effort to coordinate the work of all exploring the ways to present spatial data on the WWW. Includes papers, summaries of the work of other sites and an archive of a listserv on the subject. Brandon Plewe
Geographic Information and Analysis Laboratory (SUNY Buffalo)
A description of program and activities. Interesting work detailed. Many links to other sites. One particularly interesting project detailed on line is "The Bufallo Project: Visualizing Urban Development" by Michael Batty and David Howes.
Geographic Name Server/Xerox Map Gateway
Links the Name Server in Michigan with the map creation program at Xerox to demonstrate a convenient interface. Brandon Plewe.
Geography - U. Wisconsin
A program description augmented by much detail on specific projects. One is a collection of physical geography maps and references representing a survey of the topic. Another is a cultural map of Wisconsin still under development. A third is a "history of cartography project" - also with some material on line.
Manual of Federal Geographic Data Products
Much of the full manual produced in January, 1993 is on line. Since then, the agency has been bringing some of the actual data and maps online. Material is represented from a large number of government agencies.
Descriptions of Delorme map and software products. Map samples that are very impressive. Links to other mapping sites.
U.S. Geographic Names Database - U. of Michigan - GOPHER
An interactive data base that returns details on sites within the U.S., especially the coordinates.
Virtual Library: Geography
A well organized collection of links.
Xerox PARC PubWeb Server (Maps)
An experimental map on demand site. The map base is somewhat limited in quality, but the process is powerful, although slow.
