Hello,

It sounds like you are going to undertake some very interesting projects.
However, it appears to me that a good portion of yours efforts as you
mentioned is focused on re-inventing the wheels.  Give DEP and the WMDs
(water management district), especially St. Johns River WMD, South West
Florida WMD, and South Florida WMD, a call or get on their FTP web sites and
you will find a lot of those data sets are available.  What I would suggest
is collect/download the data sets (such as land cover data, soils data,
parcel data, brownfield data, ) you need and work on improving those data
sets or to regenerate your project data sets to suit your analyses.  Good
luck and if you need contact info, please let me know.

Good luck!

-Yurong T.

Subject: shrug-l: gis library project

i am thinking of developing a historical gis library for leon county.  i
have lots of students and am always looking for projects for them to work
on.  my original idea was to develop some layers of impervious surfaces
through time from aerial photographs to see if there is any correlation with
runoff and flooding.  i've decided to expand this into an ongoing project to
digitize and otherwise compile historical data.  some of the features i
would like to collect include land use/land cover, roads, census data,
agricultural data, and historical locations of dry cleaners and other
potential sources of ground water contamination.  i plan to collect photos
from DOT, the PALMM collection and USDA.  dry cleaners data will come from
city directories.

i'm sending this email to solicit ideas for other sources of photos and
historical data, and to invite suggestions for other types of features to
collect that would be of interest to the gis user community.

thanks for your input.
