I am looking to locate a shapefile or any vector file that can be used for analysis I am conducting of change in size of cropland in the Punjab region of Pakistan. The file of interest would reflect the area that the floods that took place in Pakistan 2010 and would provide me the ability to differentiate areas that were directly affected by the floods from ones that were not.

I have tried several outlets such as the Humanitarian Data Exchange and requesting it from several organization without any luck. I may have overlooked platforms where this data would be available that is why I am here for this help.


Such questions requesting datasets are best asked on the Open Data SE site.

That being said, you may not be aware of the Dartmouth Flood Observatory which contains global historical flood data, maybe even your Pakistan flood.

  • Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Unfortunately the Dartmouth Flood Observatory does not cary the shape file I am looking for. I am going to try and create one on my own in the mean time. – Andrew Iwashko Nov 21 '18 at 16:32
