Want to save yourself some $25,000??? Simple to do - check out these free GIS data resources from State clearinghouse sites (most of which contain freely downloadable DOQS, DRGs and more). See the following useful resources for some valuable leads:

Hi Glenn,

Sorry for posting here, but I didn't find your e-mail. I just wanted to tell you about a project we just launched few months ago,, where you can upload and easily geolocate your photos over Google Maps with just one click.

People already uploaded more then 13.000 photos. You also can see them through Panoramio's feed for Google Earth:

Hope you like it,
