Open data sources

I do some data analysis in my spare time, and it seems that there us ever more open data available for public mining.

Just read in Linux Journal that NASA is placing their data into the public domain!

Link: open.nasa.gov

Hopefully other gov agencies like NOAA will follow their lead!

In celebration, I’m going to release a lot of the sites I use for open data.

(I’ll add more tonight)

Finances:
Yahoo finance

Weather
NOAA (using a wget script)

Feel free to share your favorite sites too and I’ll add them in with credits.
