EPA Posts Data for Use in Google Earth, Maps, and Others

The EPA is making a bold and rather inspiring move in making an effort to post their data online for use in Mashups and online Mapping applications. As of Wednesday, they have posted a few hundred of the Superfund sites they have maintained for the last 25 years or so. The article indicates they plan on publishing additional data fairly soon. This is a great move by the EPA that I hope is closely mimicked by other Federal and International agencies.
