Free Data from the City of Vancouver

Greetings Everyone,

You might find this interesting. The City of Vancouver has begun making some of their data available for free. Check it out:

You can also provide your suggestions for additional data if you want.

This is a great post. To know that a City the size of Vancouver is moving to Open Standards is a huge step forward for Canadian GIS Data. Perhaps this is a model that other large municipalities could follow!?

I know from Airdrie's perspective the sales of the data we see each year do not even come close to the cover the actual costs of the data or the work that went into preparing it.

Based on the work done by Vancouver I plan on following their lead!
