The following website also contains a number of EU countries with additional links to available LiDAR data: http://vterrain.org/Locations/eu/

You could try the MIT Reality Mining dataset. It's getting a bit old but it contains information on people moving around to the level of cell tower locations rather than data like you would get from a GPS. You'll probably have to do some work to link cell tower IDs to locations too.

I think a decision to use geographic data isn't a question of popularity, but a methodic question. Raster and Vector data are basic gis data structures, they can be stored locally, or web-based. WMS and WFS are something like raster-vector, but WMS is for serving raster maps or raster map layers, they are graphic representations of raster and vector data, ...

Yet another list of free lidar datasources is available on: http://grindgis.com/data/free-lidar-data-download Europe specific: http://gipuzkoa.net (SPAIN) http://catalogue.ceda.ac.uk/list/?return_obj=ob&id=8049,8042,8051,8053 (UK) And check (not free): http://www.lidar-online.com/tools/maps/

Following the link you can find a good list of useful websites: http://gisgeography.com/top-6-free-lidar-data-sources/. All of them offer free access to lidar data in various formats (eg. *.laz or *.las).

OpenStreetMap.org holds river, and if you want to go into the sea, there is openseamap.org - Would that fit your purpose? Or you could check out http://www.diva-gis.org/Data if you have the time to download by country, and join it together yourself.

Here is a link to a crowdsourced shapefile. http://geocoder.ca/?freedata=1 Canada Post is suing over this: http://geocoder.ca/?sued=1 I don't see how Canada Post can claim copyright over addresses submitted to a crowdsourced project, but I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.

When you say it is all in the folder ready to go, I suspect you have been fooled by OS helpfully compressing and recompressing and recompressing the data for you. I have a file called terr50_gagg_gb.zip which contains data and doc folders. On unpacking it inside data I have a series of folders hp to tv for the OS grids covered. In each of these are 6 and 100 ...

I don't know how much or what type of information you have in your .CSV, but I looked at files of mine which for instance hold over 500,000 streets (polylines) where the .DAT file is 90MB and another file with 2,500 cities (polygons) where the .DAT file is only 400KB. If you'd like to send me the .CSV I can covert it to .TAB for you through MI and see if I ...

This (http://www.diva-gis.org/gdata) site is great for getting administrative data from all over the world including Europe. You can get data at different administrative levels as well (e.g., Country, State, County).

I encountered the same problem after GeoServer was updated from 2.5. to 2.7.5. Trying to view a layer in GML led to the following error message: <ServiceExceptionReport xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/ogc" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.2.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/ogc ...

I cannot advise a specific book but there are a ton of great online ressources for the scope you outlined. Some popular examples: CIA World Factbook - probably the closest to the book you mentioned FAO stat - for browsing and comparing statistical data of different countries Wolfram Alpha - for quick graphs and comparisons of countries, e.g. GDP USA vs ...

As Joseph suggested, the Fill nodata tool solves your problem. It replaces NoData values with 0's, in the band of your choice. You can find it either in Raster > Analysis, or (with a slightly different interface) Processing > Toolbox > GDAL/OGR > [GDAL] Analysis (in QGIS 2.8). Edit: of course, this assumes that GDAL is correctly installed and ...

You can download the "official" EU administrative/statistical units from Eurostat's GISCO service. The vector layers are available as ESRI Shapefiles and Personal GDBs, at different resolutions from here. Note, in order to extract the country level polygons as below, you will need to extract all features based on the following query STAT_LEVL_ = 1 from ...

Natural Earth is a great source for free data, including country and state borders, at a variety of scales. You would just need to select European countries using the attribute table.

You can download world countries from ArcGIS Online and then open the attribute table, select by attribute (CONTINENT = 'Europe') and then right click to export Europe as a new layer. Presumably you can do the same with other global data sets you've found.

I have also noticed that QGIS up to my current version (2.12.2) appears to have a problem loading MSSQL geometries of type "GeometryCollection", when you would expect Polygons or Multipolygons. To check if you have these, use: SELECT GEOM.STGeometryType() FROM [yourtable]

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre produced two pan-European forest cover maps derived from optical satellite imagery for the reference years of 2000 and 2006. The 2006 version also includes a forest type (broadleaf/coniferous) classification (see map below). All data are freely available for download as GeoTIFFs from here. More detailed ...

The SRTM data is a digital surface model as it includes canopy (and buildings and other infrastructure etc), there's further information in this question. To get a bare earth DEM from SRTM data requires some processing, for example see Gallant et al (2012). You don't specify what part of the world you want data for, but there is 30m SRTM DSM and DEM data ...

Here's a complete free tutorial on downloading, cleaning, analyzing and mapping census data: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCuEIQl2BByhnFWu858xy5O0rfVAI94Hw Full disclosure: I am the author. I use QGIS for overlaying the data and creating the maps.

I recommend GLC30 data which was developed by China scientists with the resolution of 30 m(pretty high) of the World. And, it's free to download any files. The data looks like:

not very helpful Perhaps you didn't know how to use it. Go to http://download.geonames.org/export/dump and download : either allCountries.zip [300 MB] (BEWARE, this is not a good idea as there are over 11 million features), or a single country XX.zip where XX is ISO country code. Unzip to get the text file, which is in tab-separated values (.tsv) ...

The Points of Interest data form Digimap has the pub locations but there are some quirks when it comes to using it. It is a .csv file but the columns are not separated by commas but by the pipe symbol: | This is done because there are sometimes commas in the text fields. ArcGIS needs a schema.ini file in the same folder as the .csv file to tell it that it ...

I would start with WCRP GCOS GPCC FDP version7 which is a global gridded land surface analysis of monthly precipitation, The data are monthly values from January 1901 to December 2013 at three spatial resolutions, 0.5°, 1.0°, and 2.5° lat/lon.

I do not work for any of these companies some of these are paid services and some are free. Accuracy is subjective especially when you are discussing a site that involves ratings, and the OP does not define what the criteria for horizontal accuracy is. All of them will be lacking in some way. This is why for profit data service companies exist, they are ...

Similar to gadm.org as posted by @Sebastian, there's also DIVA-GIS which also has Japan with attributes in English. I found this to have less encoding issues than what is available in gadm:

OpenStreetMap is another possibility for place names and administrative boundaries (For boundaries, you might find GADM easier to use though, as per Sebastian's suggestion). OSM uses the name tag in the local language world-wide, but in Japan you'll find many places will have English translations in the name:en tag.

The administrative units can be found at gadm.org. Some older city names (1995) are at the Harvard Asia Center.
