if you can't enable editing then maybe your data is saved as geojson or kml, you can save it as a shapefile (shp) with QGIS and load it again this way the edits can be enabled from the tool bar ( the little pen ) and you can add the data you wanted.

This is a common procedure in GIS called joining. Essentially, you are joining some table that does not have a spatial geometric component (usually Excel file, csv, or dbf) to a GIS layer based on a common id field/column. In QGIS you can do this by: Add both non-spatial table and GIS layer to QGIS Right click on the spatial layer in the layer panel and ...

I am not aware of any such public database but I suspect the term for what you are seeking is an historical gazetteer. Since you are looking for a public database, I think this is a question which could be posted at, and perhaps attract more interest on, the Open Data Stack Exchange.

Maybe you want to take a look on Mapzen Who's On First gazeteer project. Not sure if that's what you want but looks like the closest thing to GeoPlanet out there.

If you want to take OSM-Datas, I can recommend: http://download.geofabrik.de/north-america.html. When opening the data only import polyline file. To only have highways and on/off ramps search the attribute table. A detailed feature list of osm attributes can be found on: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features So do (just an example, dunno the ...

An alternate source is the Sentinel-2 Amazon S3 archive, where you can search fast and preview images (without need for login). This one is preferred if you're interested in individual granules and not the whole tile file (which is few GBs) http://sentinel-pds.s3-website.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com A Tip: the date slider has a minimum of 25/11/2015 but ...

Look at the recent PLOS paper by Hristova et al. (2016) 'The International Postal Network and Other Global Flows as Proxies for National Wellbeing'. They list several, global openly available datasets: World Trade Network available from the MIT Atlas Project (https://atlas.media.mit.edu/about/data/sources/) GlobalMigration Network available from the Global ...

You might want to move this to Open data here: http://opendata.stackexchange.com/ since this is not GIS technical related question. This is more of data request and Open data is where everyone asked data there.

I would look at the English Environment Agency's website which will provide you with 2m, 1m and in some areas 50cm resolution DTMs and DSMs. All you need to do is find some drumlins, this paper Subglacial bedforms of the last British Ice Sheet, Anna L.C. Hughes, Chris D. Clark & Colm J. Jordan could help. Here's an area of drumlins in 1 metre Lidar from ...

It worked for me. I used QGIS to produce a shp file from a geotiff from https://data.linz.govt.nz Then opened GDAL and put as per Nathan W above: ogr2ogr -f "dxf" C:\0GeoOUT\kane4.dxf C:\0GeoIN\contour.shp -zfield ELEV So I could understand it better on my system I set up input and output folders. I avoided spaces or periods in paths as I had failure (...

Try out ArcGIS Online, there is an Oakland County Administrative user who has published a number of datasets for visualization. http://www.arcgis.com/home/search.html?q=owner:OCAGOAdmin Clicking the open button will bring up an option of viewing with ArcGIS For Desktop if that is your preference.

I recommend reaching out to local Government agencies to request data. You may be able to find someone willing to supply data for teaching purposes. As a GIS Specialist for a County Government, I know that we typically sell data to local contractors and consultants (for a low cost) but will share data with teaching institutions for free. We always require a ...

Google has always been my best friend. Obviously you have to be careful with sources but anything from .gov, .mil, or .edu is usually reputable. The HIFLD OPEN dataset is open to the public but that is a federal level dataset. If you are looking for data in Michigan just start here: http://gis.michigan.opendata.arcgis.com/ https://www.oakgov.com/it/gis/...
