EuroGeographics Expands Coverage of Administrative Boundaries in Latest Data Release

Boundary information for 55 countries is available in EuroGeographics’ latest release of data from official national sources.

EuroBoundaryMap enables the exact matching of administrative areas with statistical data using a European-wide unique identifier and is produced using harmonised geospatial data from 39 members of the not-for-profit organisation for European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities. It covers all 28 EU Member States, 3 current EU candidate countries, 4 EFTA States and Kosovo as well as Greenland, the Canary Islands, Azores, Madeira and French overseas territories.

Angela Baker, Sales, Marketing and Channel Manager, EuroGeographics said: “This new version of EuroBoundaryMap offers the latest administrative and statistical information for 55 countries – from the most detailed local level to country level. In addition, the data links to the updated statistical LAU- and NUTS-codes for all local administrative units of the EU 28, which makes it ideal for a wide range of geo-referencing and analytical applications.”

“As part of our annual data update, we have also enhanced our 1:250 000 scale topographic mapping, EuroRegionalMap. Following the addition of Croatia, it now offers full coverage of the EU 28 and the boundary, hydrology, miscellaneous and name themes have been updated.”

“EuroGeographics believes in a society empowered by the use of trusted geospatial services from official national sources. Facilitating access to our members' data by delivering European geospatial products and services plays a key role in achieving this vision.”

EuroGeographics’ portfolio of pan-European datasets includes open data and a digital elevation model. The data is harmonised to standard specifications, so users can be confident that the information provided is consistent, comparable and easily shared — regardless of its national source – and is available under transparent pricing and licensing agreements.

Germany’s Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG) manages production of EuroBoundaryMap and EuroRegionalMap whilst the National Institute of Geographic and Forest Information (IGN France) supports the production of EuroGlobalMap open data.
