Administrative Boundaries 100% open


What data is expected?

Data on administrative units or areas defined for the purpose of administration by a (local) government. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Boundary level 1
  • Boundary level 2
  • Coordinates (latitude, longitude)
  • Name of poligone (department, region, city)
  • Borders of poligone

How open is the data?

Updated the Ministry responsible based in info from the forum discussion. Put the link to the GeoDash dataset that contains all the layers. Detailed the steps needed to find the relevant dataset. Changed the license to be considered "open" although there are no explicit license either way; based on the Wiki statement of the purpose of the GeoDash site. Thank you to @nhasive for discussion on forum to confirm the Ministry that GeoDash falls under. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
