There are lots of ways.. I think the easiest is probably the QuickOSM plugin for QGIS. This is a GUI wrapper around overpass turbo mentioned already. I personally find it's faster on my old laptop than using the overpass turbo website directly, but your mileage may vary. You can get back shapefiles or geojson using this plugin; the web site has more export ...

Alternatively to osmfilter, you can use osmosis to extract the data from Geofabrik extracts in one step: osmosis.bat --read-pbf <sourcefile>.osm.pbf --tf accept-ways power=* --tf accept-relations route=power --used-node --write-xml <outfile>.osm You will get the fences around power substations and stations as well. To import the data into QGIS,...

Another way is to download the osm.pbf instead of the shape files from Geofabrik. In this database, you will find the desired feature power=line. You can convert the .pbf to .osm (using Osmconvert: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmconvert) and filter the database (so you just get power lines) using OSMfilter (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/...

The osm tag you need for this is called power=line. You can obtain the data you're looking for on overpass-turbo. The query you need for this is way [power=line] ({{bbox}}); (._;>;); out; Of course you can further modify it by adapting voltage=* for example.

There is an atlas of historical boundaries which features the data you're looking for. You can find the data in different formats on the bottom of the linked page.

Unsure if you still need this data but a great resource for annual climate data is directly through NASA/USGS data repositories. Beyond that NCAR holds a large amount of gridded environmental data, specifically for climate/bioclimate. For specifically climate observations, you might be better off with HadCRU data. Both data sets are compatible with GIS ...

I believe downloading data from the Sentinel platform provided by ESA is very cumbersome. If you are willing to learn javascript, I recommend using the platform provided by Google (Google Earth Engine).

The Maptitude Mapping software from Caliper Corporation will allow you to select all of the Census Block Groups for an area and see the geographic information as well as the Median Income value for each block group. You would have to purchase the software and the additional block group data. The tools in Maptitude make it easy to visually select the block ...

I suggest NHGIS Data finder. They have ACS 2010-2014 data available and you can download the GIS boundary files as well. Note that you have to register (for free).

There is the TIGER/Line® with Selected Demographic and Economic Data which states "These geodatabases were created using ArcGIS 10.1." I was able to pull income from FactFinder (directed there by US Census) and I produced this "Economic" income result for Chicago through the advanced search: The data can be downloaded after you produce your report.

I've done some environmental consultation on that area and the best available resolution for a DEM there is probably the ASTER GDEM 30m. Even then, that data isn't processed/cleaned so you might run into problems with clouds/reflective surfaces giving you false values. The thing with Lidar is that it costs quite a bit of money to produce and while some ...

Typing nothing more than "pipeline shapefile Nigeria" into google found West African Existing and Proposed Pipelines at ArcGIS.com as the top return.

Postalcode might be difficult as it is not a real location attribut and used for organisation of delivery. For example the town where i work has above 20 postal codes that does not represent anything close to districts where you could maybe find population data for. Also those postal codes are overlapping with administrative boundaries, so you can´t (at ...

You can try the online service by OSM user Wambacher to select different levels of boundaries that are contained in the OpenStreetMap database, and download them by selection in various file formats. (OSM account needed for downloading from that server.) There is no warranty that OSM data is complete in all areas of the world, but give it a try. So the ...

In overpass turbo, click on "Wizard", enter tourism=* in the search field and then click on "build and run query" to execute your query. You may of course navigate to your area of interest and hit the "Run" button to re-run the query. For the second part of your question, simply enter the following in the wizard popup: tourism=apartment or tourism=...

I could not envisage exploring GIS/spatial/geospatial data without using GIS software. On this site there are tens of thousands of users asking and answering questions about GIS software so I think you should use the tags tab to see which are the most frequently used, review the product pages for those GIS products, and then choose which you will explore ...

Here is one approach to try and find building heights. https://www.developmentseed.org/blog/2014/08/07/processing-lidar-point-cloud/ The idea is to download the open street map building footprints dataset. Got mine from here: http://download.geofabrik.de/ Download lidar data from here: http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/ Do a spatial join with the lidar ...

A quick google search yielded this website that seems to collect district information for India, may be a good starting point http://datameet.org/wiki/indiangeospatialdata. Also this website has global administrative boundaries http://www.gadm.org/. MIT also looks like it has a repository, although i'm not certain if its free earth works standford.
