Thank Jan,  my first goal is to get a good set of global datasets up and 
running, then have others grab them.
Your link had a typo, for the mailing list record, your link should have 


> Look at http://maspserver.sara.nl , under World Maps. It has eight 
> detailed world maps (elevation, satellite, land use) at 30 seconds 
> resolution (1 km at the equator, 21600*10800 cells). They are from NASA, 

> NOAA and others and are all in the public domain. I resampled and 
> retiled them to GeoTIFF, as described in yesterday's posting
> If you want to set up a demo site with explanations how to do this in 
> MapServer, I'll be happy to assist.
