I am looking for an up-to-date communes administrative boundraries (LAU) of several countries in Europe (France + adjacent countries). I need it to be quite precise (less than 5m), since I intend to use it to retrieve commune names from a point (bus stop). I was thinking about OpenStreetMap and Overpass Turbo, but the coverage seems to be too wide to be processed, even country by country, here is one of my resquest :

  • You might look at geonames.org which only lists points, not polygons, but that data, while "precise", may not be accurate.
