My friend Sam Batzli, Director, WisconsinView, is now making available
all of the program's satellite imagery (more than 6 Terabytes worth)
under the CC0 mark. A little "press release" announcing this follows.

Since 2004, WisconsinView (http://www.wisconsinview.org) has made
aerial photography and satellite imagery of Wisconsin available to the
public for free over the web. As part of the AmericaView consortium,
WisconsinView supports access and use of these imagery collections
through education, workforce development, and research. Starting June
30, 2009, WisconsinView is making available all of its more than 6
Terabytes of imagery data under the new CC0 Protocol provided by
Creative Commons. The CC0 (pronounced CC-Zero) Protocol waives any
rights in a dataset, ensuring that all of the dataset is available to
anyone without encumbrance of any kind. More information on CC0 is
available at http://wiki.creativecommons.org/CC0, and the reasoning
behind the protocol is described at
Further questions about WisconsinView may be directed to Dr. Sam
Batzli, Director, WisconsinView at sabatzli at wisc.edu or Puneet Kishor,
Science Commons Fellow (Geospatial Data) at
punkish at creativecommons.org.
