White House to tie together mapping and data sites, By Aliya Sternstein NextGov, 05/28/2010.

“The White House has contracted with a major developer of mapping software to merge a federal website that publishes geospatial information with Data.gov, the government’s depot for downloadable data sets, the company’s president said on Thursday.

“California-based ESRI began last summer tying Data.gov to Geodata.gov, the geospatial information gateway, said company President Jack Dangermond in an interview with Nextgov.”
