  • This data set contains the administrative boundaries at country level of the world and is based on the geometry from EBM v2020 (ReferenceDate 31.12.2018) of EuroGeographics for the members of Eurogeographics, and GISCO Countries 2020. This dataset consists of 2 feature classes (regions, boundaries) per scale level and there are 6 different scale levels (100K, 1M,3M, 10M, 20M and 60M). The public data set (1M - 60M) is available under the Download link indicated below. The full data set (100K - 60M) GISCO.CNTR_2020 is available via the EC restricted download link.

  • The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) is a hierarchical classification of statistical regions and subdivides the EU economic territory into regions of four different levels (NUTS 0, 1, 2 and 3, moving respectively from larger to smaller territorial units). NUTS 1 is the most aggregated level. An additional Country level (NUTS 0) is also available for countries where the the nation at statistical level does not coincide with the administrative boundaries. For example Mt Athos in Greece and Mellum and Minsener Ogg in Germany. The NUTS classification has been officially established through Regulation (EC) No 2016/2066 of the European Parliament and of the Council and its amendments. A non-official NUTS-like classification has been defined for the EFTA countries and candidate countries. An introduction to the NUTS classification is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/nuts/overview. The datasets are based on: EuroBoundaryMap (EBM) from EuroGeographics (scale of 1:100.000), Global Administrative Unit Layer (GAUL) country data from UN/FAO, data from the National Statistical Institute of Turkey (TurkStat) (might vary for different years). The different scale levels were derived by generalisation of the 100K scale. The public datasets are available under the Download link indicated below. Available scales are: 100k, 1M, 3M, 10M, 20M, 60M. Date of the NUTS regions are currently available for the years 2003, 2006, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2021. The full datasets are available via the EC restricted download link. Here six scale ranges (100K, 1M, 3M, 10M and 20M, 60M) are available. Coverage is the economic territory of the EU, EFTA countries and candidate countries as in the respective year.

  • This data set contains the administrative boundaries at country level of the world and is based on the geometry from EBM v12.x. of EuroGeographics for the members of Eurogeographics, the Global Administrative Units Layer (2015) from FAO (UN) and geometry from the Turkish National Statistical Office. This dataset consists of 2 feature classes (regions, boundaries) per scale level and there are 6 different scale levels (100K, 1M, 3M, 10M, 20M and 60M). The public data set (1M - 60M) is available under the Download link indicated below. The full data set (100K - 60M) GISCO.CNTR_2016 is available via the EC restricted download link.
