Guild Wars 2: Leveling Crafting Above 400

Apparently all crafting in Guild Wars 2 will be expanded to level 500.  Here's a bit about how it is supposed to work.
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-16-guild-wars-2-crafting-rising-from-400-to-500

HOWEVER, right now apparently only the three weapon crafting professions go above 400 right now (October 2013).  That's weapon smith, huntsman and artificer.

Order and Chaos Online: Where to Find Crafting Materials

Where to find the various crafting materials.  General locations, listed by material type.
http://orderandchaosonline.wikia.com/wiki/Materials

Searchable database.  Choose Items, then "Material" and then the type of material (fabric, leather, ore, etc.).  "Consumables" are also hidden under Items.
http://oac-head.com

This map seems to show locations of ores, specifically bronze, marcasite and primal iron.
