  • One thought on “A VerySpatial Podcast – Episode 429

    1. The data the federal government provides is done through your taxes. They also maintain, coordinate, steward, etc. numerous databases – NHD, WBD, etc. At the Esri International Users Conference bashed the federal government for crappy authoritative data.


      Now they are hosting it AND NOT SAYING ANYTHING about the VALUE of what the Government provides to you! You are doing the same when you whine about how you can’t get your job done and you have to find other resources. What if the state closed down? What if your other sources went off line? I am sure you can get this from the private sector AND PAY FOR IT!!! Get real – get the real story. You look like fools when you gab about stuff you don’t even understand. The thousands of hours government employees spent on creating, maintaining, developing, stewarding, etc these databases to provide FREE to you isn’t being told.

      Come on – get the real story and stop sounding stupid!
