Free For All – NH GRANIT

Often times, statewide GIS departments are the best resources for free spatial data. And well, the New Hampshire GIS department definitely fits this bill. Going by the nickname NH GRANIT, the New Hampshire Statewide GIS Clearinghouse features a plethora of vector and raster files that can be downloaded here. With more than 100 spatial layers featured on their website, this is truly a treasure trove for you New England GIS’ers. Organized by category, the NH GRANIT site contains spatial data on a wide variety of topics:

Admittedly the data is a bit blurry as it was collected to support 1:18,000 scale mapping, but still, really, how cool is this imagery?! (Imagery Source: NH GRANIT)
