Free Enhanced, Collarless Digital Raster Graphics (DRG) Available From USDA

A reminder... Looking for data? The Geospatial Data Gateway provides One Stop Shopping for natural resources or environmental data including enhanced (collarless) Digital Raster Graphics (DRG). This is nice score as a commercial datadepot actually offers these same data for a cost of $4,000 ... OUCH!!Enhanced (collarless) digital raster graphics are (DRG) available for download via the USDA Geospatial Data Gateway, additionally, the status of all EDRGs (1:20k, 1:24k, 1:100k, 1:250k) are available via  Interactive (ArcIMS) map via the NRCS. See See http://datagateway.nrcs.usda.gov/  For a status map See http://www.ncgc.nrcs.usda.gov/products/datasets/drg/status-maps.html

GISUser offers just the 24K for $16,000. Somewhat hypocritical don't you think.

ya, well since your bravely anonymous, I'll comment... GISuser may have DRGs for sale in the store (these are resold from USGS quads), however, I always promote FREE data front and center at GISuser.com and try to encourage people to get free data.. if knew me or anything about the site you'd be aware of this. Unlike the data whore sites out there we encourage and help people locate free gis data.
