For a city of Leipzig (in Germany) I am looking for City Districts and Parts of City Districts in geospatial vector data format, that can be later loaded into GIS software, e.g. shapefiles, KML, GeoPackage etc. or anything that can be easily converted.

So far the best data is provided by OpenStreetMap, see overpass turbo.

My attempts to find free data failed after investigating the following sources:

I have seen the related thread, but it does not fulfill my request:

Any hints?

  • Have you tried requesting the data from the Leipzig city government? This page has contact information (including an email address) that looks relevant: english.leipzig.de/services-and-administration/… – csk Dec 28 '18 at 18:44

  • Really? Here in the US I would expect such data to be provided for free, assuming they already have it in a shareable format so it doesn't require extensive processing on their end. Perhaps that's a cultural difference. – csk Dec 28 '18 at 20:42
