The datasets below are made available as Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) web map services (WMS). They can also be accessed by websites that use a map-based interface to connect to WMS, allowing data from different providers to be visualised spatially and compared.
The Microsoft Bing Maps group kindly provided these two examples. Single Tile Layer: example Animated Tile Layer: example. In areas where NAIP data is not available, other imagery may be acquired through partnerships by the USGS. For Alaska, 10-meter resolution SPOT imagery is provided for viewing. The National Map download client allows free downloads of public domain, 1-meter resolution orthoimagery in JPEG 2000 (jp2) format for the conterminous United States. The structure of any WMS URL can generally be considered as having two parts. One part (usually the left hand side) is likely to depend on the technical architecture, the rules of the service providers, and the capabilities of the WMS software itself; the second part deals with the identification of the service itself. Wetland Web Mapping Services. NWI geospatial wetlands data and reference layers can be accessed by web-based applications and mapping software using the following Open GIS Consortium (OGC) compliant web mapping services. These services allow GIS users to display and query wetlands data without the overhead of data management.

I am not so sure that INSPIRE will fix that. 1st it's only related to
European stuff and moreover, it simply says that the information ABOUT
data should be available, which means that Metadata is collected but
it does not mean that one can access the data behind it easily or even
But maybe some day I wake up and people have all of a sudden realized
that making geodata available for free and with easy access is the
better way to make profit from it than selling it for enormous prices
or providing it in some hidden place :-)
