spatial-analyst.net

While looking for some remote sensing data last week, I ran into spatial-analyst.net, which I think deserves the FE-website-discovery-of-the-month award.  The wiki has pages dedicated to things like "How to download and resample MODIS images".  It's geared towards R users, and I'm kind of a Matlab guy, but it's still clearly useful to both parties.  For example, I really like their page pointing to various global datasets, some interesting examples of which are here:

Lighting flash rate
Second principle component of recent population density changes
Commercial shipping density
Carbon density tones of C / ha.
Estimated travel time to major cities (>50k) in hours
