This question already has an answer here:

I work with QGis 2.18.1 in Austria and need the city boundaries of Podgorica which is located in Montenegro.

Do you know where I can get or download it for free?

  • When seeking open data, even if it is spatial data, I would recommend researching/asking at the Open Data Stack Exchange. – PolyGeo Apr 24 '17 at 22:17

You can use the data from OpenStreetMap. I don't know if you're familiar with the Overpass API, and I also don't know if that data from OSM is accurate.

One way of doing it is by using overpass-turbo.eu. After finding Podgorica, use this expression in the Wizard:

place=city and name=Podgorica

Build the query and Run it. You will get the city boundary as well as a point. You can get rid of the point if you delete the line starting with node. You can export the result as a GeoJSON in WGS84, which you can open in QGIS. The same thing can be done in QGIS using the QuickOSM plugin.

  • Thank you for your comment! I tried it like you said and got some results. Unfortunately these weren´t accurante enough. – Rita Sündhofer Apr 25 '17 at 7:21

    Hi. Thanks for your answer but I had a look at all of those links and I couldn´t find the boundaries of Podgorica. Only the borders of the country (Montenegro) but they are not sufficient for my research. Kind regards. – Rita Sündhofer Apr 24 '17 at 13:29
  • Ok i thought Podgorica was another name for Montenegro – BERA Apr 24 '17 at 13:36
