Hi Toya,

I can think of three places of the top of my head. Cloud Made (www.cloudmade.com) has a bunch of data from their mapping parties. The regional EPA office (uh, I forgot the correct term) a geographical mapping? office in SF. And you can always, probably more for spot checks, get latitude & longitude from Google Maps. Since they don't have control of the source files, it might be a little off. Probably grenade accurracy.

Subject: [sf-lug] geoprocessing help


I am working on a website that works with maps API etc. Is a free
software people are developing in Brazil and I want to start testing it
for SF.

I was wondering if anyone here could give me a hint of where I can get
some data about San Francisco. If there is any geoprocessing department
of universities here that I could get in touch to get this data.

Pretty much I am looking for latitude and longitude data for the
neighborhoods of SF. For a city in Brazil we could get this data with
the university department of geoprocessing, so I think some university
here might be able to help me out with it.

I appreciate any help.
