I currently have set of coordinates (lat,lon) that I would like to associate with neighborhoods or districts in Saudi Arabia. Therefore,I might be looking for neighborhood boundaries (polygons coordinates). What would be the best way to achieve this? I do not mind paid services, but of course I would prefer open/free services if possible.

Edit: searching in Google Maps selects the district boundaries, but I couldn't download this polygon using their API.

    Have you looked at GADM? gadm.org/country

  • This is on the administrative area level and not district/neighborhood level.

  • For Riyadh (the capital) wikimapia is pretty good. I validated the boundaries of 164 districts and it seems pretty accurate. However, the rest of the cities are a bit more tricky.

You could check out if http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-cultural-vectors/ or http://www.weogeo.com/ has the data you want.

  • I contacted Weogeo to see if they have it. Natural earth don't seem to have them.
