Add official country and state boundaries of India from Survey of India #32
The Survey of India has made the shapefiles of the official borders available on their online portal https://indiamaps.gov.in/soiapp/
Visually checked them and they look quite accurate except for some issues along the coastline. This can be used to replace some of the existing shapefiles in the repository.
Thanks @planemad This dataset looks great in places, but at others, is extremly weird, and in some places wrong.
Some Examples (Blue with Black boundaries is existing State Boundary; Red is the SOI boundary) :
Even the New AP/Telengana boundry does not match the one that they have at http://www.surveyofindia.gov.in/files/Telangana%20Map.pdf
It doen't mention Goverment Open Data License. But has
Practically all use except commercial. Should we write to them, to release under GODL?
