On many Linux distributions, a list of iso country codes is installed by default under: /usr/share/xml/iso-codes/iso_3166.xml Under Fedora/CentOS/RHEL/Debian, the package that contains this file is called iso-codes (project homepage). The XML file contains the mapping in a hierarchical structure: <iso_3166_entries> <iso_3166_entry ...

I think that http://www.worldclim.org should do the trick as they offer datasets in different resolutions including 30 sec.

If you are just looking for a table with city names and coordinates, I would recommend the US geographic Names file. You can download the data (Domestic and Antarctic Names - State and Topical Gazetteer Download Files) here: http://geonames.usgs.gov/domestic/download_data.htm There are also worldwide names on the website. The tables contain many types of ...

One solution would be to take the centroid of each polygon to get a point set. Depending on the software you may have the option to create the new point file in the format you want instead of having to convert it later. Example of converting geometry in QGIS

The only satellite with hyper-spectral imaging capabilities that I've been able to find is EO-1, which has the Hyperion spectrometer you're referencing. There could potentially be satellites that aren't in the public eye with such capabilities, perhaps military satellites, but I certainly haven't heard of any. Perhaps multi-spectral imaging would work for ...

This is likely too late for your needs, but http://OnTimeZone.com has what you are looking for. It is more current, more detailed, and more accurate than the efele.net data. It also has data about local deviations from official time zone observance. The data is available for download in multiple formats and is free for non-commercial, non-governmental ...

You may check http://vterrain.org/Imagery/WholeEarth/ for links to satellite imagery, or http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-raster-data/ for raster images. These images can be tweaked in Photoshop to get your own look&feel and rendered with MapTiler into tiles - check http://examples.webglearth.com/#customtiles and esp. ...

It looks like it could be from the Project Linework website. Specifically, the "Angular" or "Twenty Seventy" datasets.

This might help out. It's a link to what appears to be all state boundaries. https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=f7f805eb65eb4ab787a0a3e1116ca7e5

I was going to say this has already been done, but @juturna and @owenboswarva beat me to it. If you do want to go ahead and do this your own way, it sounds like geocoding is the way forward. There should be enough here and here to get you started.

Since I found the data I was looking for, here I report the links I found more useful. The following links contains connections to free landuse shapefile data for UK landuse: Landuse data from the CORINE project, updated 2012; the data available from this website cover ALL the GB area, but they have a lower definition in comparison to the third link I list ...

OS Code-Point Open is probably the best you will get for free, and should provide you with all the data you need.

Another option, which may especially be suitable for ArcGIS users, is Esri Geoportal Server (not to be confused with Portal for ArcGIS.) Esri Geoportal Server is not a part of the ArcGIS platform, and is a stand-alone application: Esri Geoportal Server is a free, open source product that enables discovery and use of geospatial resources including ...

For 1st case, you didn't look enough. You should look at this type of URL. It's the clue to get the shop informations although as stated by other people, I'm not sure it's really allowed... For the 2nd case, you just need to reuse the URL calls your already discovered. Using a grid, you can get a series of regular coordinates to set geometry parameter in ...

If you're just trying to pull the geographic data, there seems to be an API for the REST services that are feeding the map.

It looks like this site is using google maps data to power it. If you go to google maps and search for Aldi (at the same extent) you can compare to check if this is true or not: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/search/Aldi/@51.5256398,-0.2283121,11z/data=!3m1!4b1 If it is using google maps data then you can use the google maps geocoder api to scrape for ...

The National Historical Geographic Information System (NHGIS) might be worth looking at. They have made available aggregate US census data and GIS-compatible boundary files.

For metro data you would likely need to create a new shapefile and manually input the data for your cities. You can find historical city populations out there but I'm not sure if it's the most practical idea to use it. You should focus on using counties. https://www.census.gov/population/www/censusdata/pop1790-1990.html That is a link to historical US ...

An all encompassing list of this information may be hard to find. One option would be to compile your own list using a site like latlong.net or using something like Google Earth. Just zoom in close and record the lng/lat coordinates.

These values are scaled Kelvin. You can see in the MODIS website detailed specification about the MOD11C3 data If you multiply the raster by 0.02 you should get the values in Kelvin

Google is your friend. Looks like Chicago calls those "Community Areas". You can download the shapefile from their Data Portal at https://data.cityofchicago.org/Facilities-Geographic-Boundaries/Boundaries-Community-Areas-current-/cauq-8yn6. Just click on the blue export button in the top-right corner. To get the exact representation as what you linked to, ...

Check Mapzen's metro extracts for Atlanta. They use OSM data and I believe they've also imported Fulton County's data into it. They also have different formats in case you need something other then shapefile

Fulton County has GIS data available. If you cannot access the data for download on their GIS website, give their GIS department a call/email and ask if they have an FTP site or other means to download the data.

As far as I know, ALL of NASA's scientific data is freely available. You can find the datasets you need by either searching NASA's data portal, or in mission-specific sites and hubs.

Do note that MDHald's answer is linking you to Sentinel-1 SAR Data. The Sentinel-2 EO data has it's own "pre-ops" hub. With the login credentials currently guest/guest. As you can see, searching for "nigeria" returns correct results. If you want to search for individual granules, you can use this KML tiling grid to locate them Sentinel-2 data is also ...

Better than volcanoes is the actual plate boundaries, given volcanoes are typically offset from the boundaries and aren't always indicative of a plate boundary (e.g. most volcanic sea mounts). Here's a project that publishes the boundaries and will mean you don't have to draw anything by hand (will work better with multiple map scales): Home page: ...

Had a spare twenty minutes so did this. The white stripe is just where tile servers aren't happy with the EPSG:3832 projection. Hmmm...
