Your tax dollars at work

For some reason I like maps and have lots of bookmarks for mapping sites on the Internet. Old reliables like Mapblast or hybrid versions using satellite technology like Yahoo Beta and the best ever for detail and clarity, England's Ordnance Survey.

So, I was kind of pleased to stumble onto a new mapping site, one I didn't know about, plus one that promised to be Your One Stop for Federal, State, and Local Geographic Data. From the folks at the US Geological Survey Geodata.

Amazing, absolutely amazing. The most unintuitive mapping site ever devised. Incredible. I'm in awe, dumbstruck. I didn't think that even Federal employees were capable of this kind of poor design and user interface.
