Data.gov to be discontinued !!!

Data.gov which was only launched in May 2009 is reported to be at risk of being shut-down along with several other US gov 'transparency' websites. READ MORE...

HAZUS.org believes that DATA.gov could be better but it is a "good start". Perhaps the government needs to address the cost of operating DATA.gov (reported to be as much as $5Mill a year!) and other factors such as duplication of content but it is downright silly to close-down operations completely.

Ready access to current data and information is the core to effective disaster response, recovery, mitigation and planning.

Speak-up and let your federal elected officials know your thoughts ...
