Looking for maps that delineate recent outbreaks of potentially dangerous algae? How about county-by-county charts of infant mortality in the southern United States? At the portal Geodata.gov, you can quickly find loads of mappable data mainly from the federal government. Whether it's the locations of wetlands or crop-growing conditions around the world, the site provides a brief description of the data set and a link to its home. Many of the original sites offer their own mapping features, but Geodata.gov allows you to combine data sets from different sources.
