I think Shapefiles and Spatial Data are amazing. What they contain and what you can do with them. I’m trying to capture some of the better resources for spatial data and Shapefiles in one place. These are just some of the websites I’ve found that offer free Shapefiles. I’m going to be categorizing this page further and adding to this collection over time, so check back now and then or join my newsletter for updates.
