Map enthusiasts might enjoy The Geography Network, a new venture from ESRI, vendor of the most used GIS system. The site includes an in-browser viewer, so you don't need to own any ESRI products to see the free data. If you do, though, the data's yours for the downloading. They've already got the latest TIGER census maps as well as a ton of maps and information from around the globe. They hope to create a central location for GIS data sharing, and they're off to a good start.

Another great source for GIS data is the US government's National Atlas.

Yay! I love maps!

Another fun resource is National Geographic's Map Machine. (Unfortunately, it's not as fun on slow connections.)

The census maps are really neat. Thanks for the link!
