Any updates on the Free DRG project?
I'm curious, has anyone heard anything about the progress or plans to make the DRGs freely available via the Internet archive? Recall the plan from few weeks ago where Jared bought the DRG collection from a vendor, collected "donations" from the industry and then told us that the data would be made publicly available in a handy location (I still contend that they already are publicly available) . I've contacted them a couple of times requesting a simple update or any information at all but have not heard a word - although a small mesage on the site states that the data has been delivered. Now, don't get me wrong but won't uploading and indexing thousands of DRG files take considerable effort?? Until them a few free DRG resources can be found here and there's also the fabulous Geospatial Data Gateway - Have you heard anything? Related weblink http://libre.redjar.org/maps/
