Thats cool, :-)
good point, 'unlimited computing power'

how 'bout this:
-it would be more likely that non-profits would be willing to (collect
themselves) and share their Geodata to a LC than independents.
(fact: (search "Ontario geodata Exchange" but licence maybe
incompatable, so direct is better.

it would be easier to work with OSGeo?

-but i think donating geodata is the biggest +, and OSGeo might help with that.
