Python Geo Data Script

I packaged up a python script that quickly downloads spatial data for a specified city, county or coordinate within the US. It downloads data from the US Census, SimpleGeo and OpenStreetMap, unpacks it and places it into a nicely named folder. Its a useful script to have on hand for anyone who routinely works with geo data as it saves many steps compared to browsing the census website for the required data.
