Hm well, that's a shame. I liked USGS. Although I s'pose I see their point in not repeating websites...it'd give an advantage to teams that have competed with the site before.

I just took a cursory glance at CDC.gov and it seems like a very good site for CompThis - there is a TON of information, both data and in text (which will make a well-organized website and/or highly honed search skills important).

Their homepage even has a link to lots and lots of data/charts/stats. Fancy!

From the small section of the site I checked out for the test, it looks great. Not at all like NASA. But I didn't look at too much of the site.

Yes. Which is a good thing, since this is a new site no team has an advantage over another.
