mapsicon mapsicon is a free collection of maps for every country in the world, available in 11 sizes or in SVG. The maps are named after the official two-letter country codes defined in ISO 3166-1. Basically, that means the United States are named US, Canada is named CA, etc. If you need to access all those countries programmatically, here is a gist ...

Glad you figured out a solution. I was almost done writing this answer when you posted yours, so here's another way: Download and install QGIS, which is a free GIS program. Import your point data into QGIS as a CSV (tutorial). Obtain timezones in a geospatial format (eg from here or here) and import into QGIS. Run a spatial join between the point layer ...

So I was able to get this information for almost all my weather stations by using the GeoNames.org service: http://www.geonames.org/export/web-services.html#timezone Using one of my examples: http://api.geonames.org/timezone?lat=30.183&lng=-97.68&username=demo returns the following XML block: <geonames> <timezone tzversion="tzdata2018g"&...

You can use QGIS to save the data from this service to all supported vector file formats. I have tried adding the url https://dservices1.arcgis.com/0MSEUqKaxRlEPj5g/arcgis/services/Active_Volcanoes_WFS/WFSServer to the list of WFS services in QGIS 3.6.2 and it shows the SDE_GLB_VOLC without a problem. You can right click on the layer name (SDE_GLB_VOLC) in ...

Cool question and nice map... I did a reverse image search and found a blog post from 2011, the same year as the map's creation, which has lots of technical details: https://www.digitalcommonwealth.org/search/commonwealth:7h149v32x Title: 1630 shoreline Creator: Metropolitan Planning Organization (Mass.).

A major source for openly available Satellite Imagery is the USGS EarthExplorer Platform. This contains a huge swath of remotely-sensed data at the global scale going back to the 1980s and is updated in near-real-time. An API for this available but it seems the URL to it is broken/forbidden. Here is link to a GitHub project (yannforget/satxplore) created to ...

There are numerous instances of GIS crime data available to the public, at least in the US, probably too many list and/or no one has done an entire audit of the Criminal Justice open data space. The overwhelming majority of these datasets are at the local level, on the locality's gov site and/or the locality's criminal justice agency's site (if they aren'...

Somewhere in the IBGE perhaps? Sorry my Portuguese isn't great, but there is data for RJ here: https://agenciadenoticias.ibge.gov.br/agencia-sala-de-imprensa/2013-agencia-de-noticias/releases/21571-ibge-lanca-a-versao-2018-da-base-cartografica-vetorial-continua-do-estado-do-rio-de-janeiro and other data on the ftp servers: ftp://geoftp.ibge.gov.br/...

The data you're looking for is available from the USGS. I presume you have some sort of internet access (you wouldn't be posting here otherwise) and are looking for data you can use offline. I believe they used to offer their data on disk but it's not clear if they still do for anything but LIDAR point clouds; if you need the data on disk you should ...

You can check out the underlying data, which can help to understand what is what, and if you know the area, what may be mis-tagged. The "dashed brown line" is a grade3 track: Mostly solid. Even mixture of hard and soft materials. Almost always an unpaved track. Interesting, at the end of the dashed line there is a "turning circle", according to the map ...

Although the data will likely will require some additional tweaking; OpenStreetMap has what you're looking for. For example, in this query run in the Overpass tool that I ran for you of all placesthat are classified as a city in OSM (note: query may take several seconds to load on your computer; you're probably best off exporting it immediately to run the ...

I was able to complete this by generating internal boundaries for Carrier Route data using Voronoi. the endpoints to query for carrier routes exist on boundaries-io.com here is a link to a blog where i figured it out...if this helps someone.

Natural Earth Data has Rivers and Lake Centerlines and Lakes and Reservoirs. The USGS Earth Explorer will let you download data from anywhere in the world. Type "Kazakhstan" into the place search criteria box, click over to data sets and type "hydro" into the data set search box. The dataset called GTOPO30 HYDRO1K is a hydrology raster. There's a download ...

you can find them here and download them as a shapefile (or other format) in the Export tab. Hope this helps

Those are the HU-2 (2-digit Hydrologic Units) boundaries from the national Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD). Sometimes you'll see them referred to as HUC-2 instead of HU-2 (HUC = Hydrologic Unit Code). It should be possible to download this data for the entire continental US as a single dataset. However... It's very easy to get the metadata for this ...

Administrative Levels: Nigerian administrative boundaries are broken in states, senatorial districts, Local Government Areas (LGAs) and Wards. As at the time of writing this, there are 36 states (and federal capital territory, Abuja), 109 senatorial districts, 775 LGAs and 8809 Wards. So, in other words the country is broken into states, the states are ...

I have found 2 repositories with graphs Real Datasets for Spatial Databases There are 5 spatial graphs. Each graph is build from two files: list of nodes with x and y coordinates and list of edges with distances. This format is quite useful for tests and debugging: you can load small number of nodes (e.g. 20) then load only edges used by that subset of ...

I would check out the Global Wind Atlas by the DTU Energy and the World Bank Group. They have global data in GIS format, free of charge. Hope this is helpful!

EDDMapS (Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System) has reports of invasive species in the United States. This website is developed and maintained by the University of Georgia. It's very reliable data, but the website is on the slow side. Features of this dataset: Distribution is usually limited to the United States, and occasionally southern parts ...

My way of approaching this would be to download the OpenStreetMap .pbf files directly from a source that regionally subsets the OSM data and then convert it to whatever format works best. A great source for raw OSM data is Geofabrik.de. They have regionally subdivided .pbf files that can be easily converted to anything that can be read/written by gdal/ogr. ...

Your question is pretty old now, but I'm looking for the same stuff and found this article so far: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7225829 The corresponding dataset (described in this article) can be found here: https://zenodo.org/record/57731#.XDS-Plz0laQ Maybe this helps you. If you found something yourself in the meantime I would appreciate it if ...

Not a perfect answer, but the current best option is the Functional Road Classification for a starting point. It is available on Chicago's data portal. The shapefiles have metadata attached to each road segment. The "Class" field will list the road classification and provides a rough guide. Though not machine readable, this PDF lists those restrictions (...

I know that this data exists for Africa. Here is the link. http://worldmap.harvard.edu/africamap/ There is a variable under the "Ethno Linguistic" group labeled as Language Families 2001.

After some searching I found this data set which can be downloaded as a KML file. It is made from contouring stations of a shared zone and can be found here. It would appear that a data set from Transport for London does not exist so this may be the closest representation.

Wikipedia has a List of North American settlements by year of foundation, formatted as a sortable table.
