Video: Free and Open Source GIS Reference Data

After last week's post looking at the landscape of free and open source GIS software, the next logical step is looking at open GIS data. This video looks at reference data. I am still deciding on what to do the next video on...the choices are a) Open data portals, b) novel data types, social media (TwitteR and Instagram), or c) remote sensing.  Let me know what you would like to see in the comments below.
