I came across the Natural Earth site www.naturalearthdata.com from an answer on this stack - I've found it a great resource for shape data - probably the best available.
But looking around the site I've become a little concerned that the project is dying:
- no releases since 2012
- single blog post since 2012
- can't register for forums
- "contact us" / "pitch in" email address bounces
- subscribing for updates doesn't send any confirmation email
- email address listed for updates also bounces
Am I over-reacting?
