I get asked from time to time about locating "Big Data" - or large sets of data for an application.
Microsoft has a new service called "Dallas". It's a marketplace for data - some of it free, some of it you pay for. You can use a Windows Live Account to log in, shop for data, and import it into any program you like.
This morning I'm playing with data from NASA from the Mars Rover program - it's free, and you can try it out as well: http://pinpoint.microsoft.com/en-us/applications/nasa-mars-exploration-rover-mission-images-12884902246
