Geographical Imagery and Data of Michigan Available for All

From the announcement on Science Commons:

Starting Jan 28, 2010, MichiganView is making available all of its more than 93 Gigabytes of Landsat 5 and 7, and NAIP imagery data in the public domain using the new CC0 Waiver provided by Creative Commons.

MichiganView is a non-profit consortium of academic, non-profit, and governmental organizations that provides a tremendous amount of geographical imagery and data to the public coordinated by Dr. Tyler Erickson of Michigan Technological University.

This is an amazing development that ensures that this publicly funded and produced collection of images and data is available for all to use and reuse without restriction thus ensuring the broadest of possibilities for new innovation.
