Hi everybody,

I wonder if anyone have collected a generic list of categories "what 
kind of public data exists". By generic I mean that in each country and 
each city the resposible organizations are different and the names of 
the data set are different, bur generically speaking the same kind of 
data sets can be found.

The listing could be somehow hierarchical like

Geographic data
    -
    -
    ...
Environmental data
    -
    -
    ...

You got the point. This would be highly valuable for anybody who is 
starting to build the first data catalog ih her city/country.

Best regards,
