WE DO WEBSITE ARCHIVING
Note: the websites listed below may now be working, but as of 04/12/01 the Global Environmental Atlas -- 1000s of environmental maps -- are still offline. I was able to find a "window of opportunity" and archive most of these.
Recently Ian Thomas was fired from his post as a mapping specialist at the GIS & Remote Sensing Unit Biological Resources Division, United States Geological Survey Patuxent Wildlife Research Center for posting a map on the internet. Check his email explaining the situation and an LA Times article. The entire website that he was working on that included 20-30,000 wildlife maps was removed from the USGS server. See the Global Environmental Atlas.
This information is paid for with our tax dollars but when it conflicts with our governments plans for economic growth, it is removed from public view. There are two immediate steps that can be taken to alleviate this situation and you can help.
- Archive public websites before they are changed or go away altogether.
- File freedom of information act (FOIA) requests to obtain the lost information.
