I'm looking for boundary files for towns, villages and prefectures in China that are free. I've came across http://chinadataonline.org/, but they are limited.
Can anyone tell me where to look?
Have you seen or checked DIVA-GIS that they have China boundary ?
Though this site does not have any GIS layers but it has the information about China : http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/china.htm They have put up maps that may help you to locate towns,Villages and etc..
GeoNetwork has another one for China as well http://www.fao.org/geonetwork/srv/en/main.home
