Check out http://zipcodezoo.com/default.asp.
It seems to be a hodgepodge of miscellany thrown together without much
concern for cohesion of data from different sources. The sources are
mostly documented, but there are major problems. A genus description
from the Flora of North America, for example, is limited to North
America, but this is not flagged.

EoL? Will it have the same problems as ZipCodeZoo?
