Garet and I were browsing online for some GIS data when we ran across this site: www.naturalearthdata.com/
After searching for 3 hours for some simple river data we stumbled across this page where I read the following :

"Natural Earth solves a problem: finding suitable data for making small-scale maps. In a time when the web is awash in geospatial data, cartographers are forced to waste time sifting through confusing tangles of poorly attributed data to make clean, legible maps. Because your time is valuable, Natural Earth data comes ready-to-use."

At the top of the banner I caught a glimpse of some of their new data labeled: "Cross Blended Hypso with Shaded Relief and Water"
I'm not sure what Hypso is but Im excited to try it out!

Let me know what you all think!
