Just thought I'd pass along this nifty resource I found the other day:
It's a collection of public domain, global GIS data sets. The catalogue is pretty extensive and very current.
It's probably too coarse to be of much use to many of you for municipal level mapping, but may be of value if you're looking to make smaller-scale maps (e.g. reference maps to show where in the world you're located).
Hope to see you all tomorrow at the RGIS Strat Plan Workshop.
