Isn’t public data great?

Thanks to this website at the National Weather Service (a friend to all free data lovers these days) you cna get a complete list of counties in the US and US territories. The list includes data such as the NOAA/NWS FIPS codes, centralized coordinates and a description of where in the state the county is located. The list is currently provided in three formats at least one of which (dbf) can be opened in the free OpenOffice Calc (spreadsheet) program. If you don’t have a use for this data right now at least you can look at this lovely map of all 3110 counties in the continental United States.
