Use these files to make maps.

Directory guide

The directories are grouped by the outer boundary of the files contained therein. For example, all of the files in the india directory will have India's borders as their outer boundary.

Each lowest-level directory contains shapefiles and a README describing the files' source and the delimitation in which they were created. (Many of these READMEs are empty or incomplete. You can help by contributing.)

File types

You'll find a few different file types which can be used to make maps with different software.


Though we have attempted to gather these files from the most reliable sources available, we do not guarantee their accuracy. You use these files at your own risk.
