You can download the "official" EU administrative/statistical units from Eurostat's GISCO service. The vector layers are available as ESRI Shapefiles and Personal GDBs, at different resolutions from here.
Note, in order to extract the country level polygons as below, you will need to extract all features based on the following query STAT_LEVL_ = 1 from ...
Due to the size of the shapefiles, they are not posted in the OECD website. The TL2 and TL3 shapefiles can be found in the following Dropbox link:
The detailed FUAs can be found at the following link:
You can obtain the line shapefile for the Mexican border from the U.S. Geological Survey website (or click here directly). Scroll down and from the list of Categories, select the Boundaries option. Then from the Int Boundary layer, click the Shapefile link:
You will also get the length of each line feature (as the boundary is broken up into segments).
Cool project! You might take a look at MapIt: Global:
MapIt is a service that maps geographical points to administrative areas. This edition is based on source data from the totally amazing OpenStreetMap project, so add your boundaries there if they’re missing. If you’re in the UK our MapIt UK with open Ordnance Survey data will probably be more useful.
A GRASS-GIS way:
get the NUTS 2013 ESRI Shapefile
and, if not existing, create a Location based on EPSG 3035
grass72 -c NUTS_RG_01M_2013.shp /geo/grassdb/europe/etrs_1989_laea
Else skip the next command and enter in a Location based on the ...
This looks to me like a one degree wide and half degree high sheet layout of topographic maps similar to NTS.
Created with QGIS using vector raster. The numbering looks like a combination of West and North coordinates in 1/10 degrees.
This map contains an overview of 1:100,000 maps with the same numbering scheme:
Admin boundaries below the taluka level are available only in the District Census Handbooks (where a map is given for each taluka or CD block). These taluka/CD block maps contain village and town boundaries (not boundaries of wards inside towns). These maps are not very accurate (spatially): our attempt to digitize and georectify these maps produces layers ...
There is a good data set from Natural Earth that contains countries and their admin units. As far as I remember abbreviations and ISO codes are also included. The data is free and more or less up to date. Have a look:
Maybe this post is helpful too:
Full list of ...
Unless you have a particular reason for using the boundary commissions, you can get national boundaries from the downloads at Natural Earth (this includes contested areas - if there are any in your area of interest). Go to the link, look under "Large Scale" and then "Cultural" for the files you will need.
check this link http://www.geohive.com/cntry/ecuador.aspx for the census data (1990,2001 and 2010)
this one http://www.fao.org/geonetwork/srv/en/metadata.show?id=1174&currTab=simple for the admin limits
By the way it is better to add the info that you are looking for the admin regions called "Parishes". These are third-level administrative units of ...
Shape files for India municipalities/village level won't be available as of now, But can be generated in QGIS or other such softwares by overlay digitization with background Web Map Services. India's Bhuvan is providing Web Map Service for 18 States at village or municipality level along with other numerous layers. To use WMS with QGIS this is a good ...
I would lean on this definition - East African Countries
East Africa or Eastern Africa is the easterly region of the African continent, variably defined by geography or geopolitics. In the United Nations Statistics Division scheme of geographic regions, 20 territories constitute Eastern Africa UN Source
A simple way would be to have your national borders in a separate file from your subnational borders.
Here is an example if you use the most-detailed border datasets from Natural Earth Data (http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-cultural-vectors/). I downloaded both the "Admin 0 - Countries" and "Admin 1- States/Provinces" datasets. They should ...
You may instead want to produce a Concave Hull (that is, replace ST_ConvexHull with ST_ConcaveHull as well as possibly experimenting with tweaking the second and third optional target_percent and allow_holes parameters). It may still be disappointingly simple depending on the target_percent you set, but it will most likely be closer to the ideal shape you ...
The perl script by Gary68 is outdated, because Openstreetmap has skipped the 32bit limit on node numbers, and Gary68 does not maintain his scripts anymore.
You can use osmconvert and osmfilter to query extracts, or use Overpass API to request the live database. The Openstreetmap wiki will guide you through both.
CLU isn't available to the general public. It's considered PII now.
None the less. It's doesn't cover all ground, just those involved in USDA programs. Plus, the boundaries don't always match up with what's actually going on the ground.
For example, a producer decides to crop one part of a field in beans and the other in corn. The CLU boundary may not ...
I was able to get this to work using the administrative boundaries dataset available here: https://mapzen.com/data/borders/
$ wget http://s3.amazonaws.com/osm-polygons.mapzen.com/planet_geojson.tgz
$ tar -zxvf planet_geojson.tgz
Since we want administrative level 2, use the file planet/admin_level_2.geojson for the next steps.
To import the GeoJSON file ...
Sometimes INEGI can help! from our side (México), and depends of what you want to do with that, look in this site:
click in "Areas geoestadisticas estatales"
Read this https://mapzen.com/documentation/search/data-sources/
and this blog: https://mapzen.com/blog/who-s-on-first
to learn about OpenStreetMap sources and the (few) additional sources.
Then look especially at the very recent Zetashapes: http://zetashapes.com/
Bottom-line is: OpenStreetMap will be the dataset you want, but it's neither complete nor easy ...
There is a tool that can convert JPGIS data which are in xml format into shapefile data. The tool is named ksjtool, and you can choose between (1) 32Bit or (2) 64Bit, as you can see from the image below:
After downloading the file, unzip ksjtool, and install it. Then, open the ksjtool, and you will have two inputs, as you can see in the image below:
(Caveate: I'm newer to the specifics of National Statistics' Output Area geography than you are.)
From both the BoundaryViewer and output-areas-explained links you provide, I reach the same conclusion you do: there is a simple hierarchical relationship with Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LSOA) nesting inside, and filling, Middle Layer Super Output Areas (...
I don't know if I have understood what you are looking for, but there is the Line-polygon intersection SAGA tool that should do the job.
The following is a workflow which you could simply implement in a model or in a PyQGIS script:
convert the polygon to lines with the Polygons to lines tool;
run the Line-polygon intersection SAGA tool setting keep ...
