Ben Harden (at the new Grantham Institute for Climate Change [1]) and I 
have started putting together a few wiki pages about environmental data:


So far we've got a brief section on relevant law/policy [2] and 
commented lists of datasets [3], dataset distributors [4], research 
groups [5], and  F/OS software packages that can be used to 
analyse/represent the data [6].

Links to datasets are going to be added to CKAN.

I think we're going to start writing to researchers/distributors where 
licenses or terms of use are unclear or absent.

As usual, any input, comments, feedback etc. would be much appreciated!
