SPOT VEGETATION Data
Nice pickup by GoGeo on free SPOT VEGETATION data with the impending end of the product. Comparable with AVHRR and worth a punt if you need wide coverage

Journal of Maps Most Read
Just wanted to flag the Journal of Maps Most Read Articles - its a good way to see what has been trending and maybe take a peak at some of the articles. Our top article (at over 2000 downloads) is The Spanish population during the twentieth century and beyond which was our "Best Map" of 2012. This is currently a "free view" as it was released under our "Editor's Choice".

Live London Buses
The Live London Bus Tracker is just too cool to pass up - pick your route and be mesmerised by the buses passes to-and-fro. Want to get on an old Routemaster?

There are train and tube trackers around, but this for me is a winner!
