Title: Are there maps similar to USGS shapefiles for other countries?
Post by: ironbiscuit on April 25, 2022, 09:20:54 AM
Are there any free download sites for shapefiles of other countries, similar to what the USGS has for U.S. states?  I am specifically looking for shapefiles of Mongolia.

For 'official' maps I know of Great Britain, France, Estonia and Finland - but not Mongolia.

GEOFABRIK has shapefiles made from Open Street Map.

All of these are free.
