A geographical map of the country including national traffic routes, stretches of water, and markings of heights. The map must at least be provided at a scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km). Geographic information is instrumental for many use cases, including the mapping of unemployment statistics or demographics, as well as journey planning. See our methodology section for more information.
According to the website and the projection file of the shapefiles, the data is referenced in a local system, State Plane Coordinate System projection Lambert Conformal Conic, Datum NAD83, revision 1997. This is a local system, meaning that if one would need to work with this data in conjunction with other datasets that are referenced, one would firstly have to geo-reference it, a process that is not trivial whatsoever, when considering vectors.
