Is there a GIS source that contains the location and type of obstacles along the USA Southern border? Additional meta data would be great as well; when it was install, dimensions, materials, number of repairs, and so on.

Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) has an Open Data Portal where most of this data can be found.
HIFLD 2018 Data Catalog (.xlsx) lists all of their open data wares for the year.

Specifically, borders, boundaries, natural hazards, and transportation ground datasets seem pertinent here.

Note: if the portal isn't definitive enough, go through the data catalog; searching for "border" returned six results, whereas searching the portal for the borders tag only yields three.


all I know is they might have what you are looking for...


They have their geospatial data there.
