GeneralFun with [Map] Data PinprotectorAspDotNetDev12-Apr-14 22:18 
I just came across http://www.openstreetmap.org/ and have been playing with the data. Amazing how many parking structures there are.
 
It's like an open source version of Google Maps (streets, restaurants, places of interest, speed limits, and so on). You can download all of the data as an XML file, or you can download just the data for a particular city or other region (click "Export" near the top of the page). There are apparently programs to analyze the data, but I've been having fun just looking at it in a text editor. You can even contribute to it, but I haven't tried that yet.
 
Have any of you come across any interesting data that can be freely downloaded?
