Can I download this file somewhere?

City Pulse Team said...

We are trying to provide the download links for maximum data available at this site. But for specialized products like this which cost millions in open market, we need to know the application of dataset before providing that. If you want to have it for your educational or academic purpose or any kind of knowledge development, please write us a detailed e-mail describing the utilization of this data. Resultantly we will send you the required dataset as soon as possible after our satisfaction.

As a wildlife ecologist, I frequently rely on spatial data generated and compiled by others. GIS data for some areas are hard to come by or are not available at all. So, I was pleased to see the wealth of data already accumulated by Pakistan GIS and appreciated the speed with which my data request was addressed. Keep up the good work!

This looks like a great project! Does the file's attribute table include the district and province for each tehsil polygon?

Thanks for your response.

City Pulse Team said...

Yes, the attribute files of Tehsil data sets do include district and province names.
Even in case of any missing these can be generated easily using District and Provincial data sets... :)

Thanks for your complements...

Just one more question! Is there any chance that the file already contains 1998 census data? Thank you again.

Don’t confuse the audients and clearly say no free of cost download available. And by the way who is creator of all these resources I think you have got all these datasets by other means from any organization.

City Pulse Team said...

Not for Tehsil level data, however census is available for district level data....

Dear McRAM, we dont need to confuse anyone. People who are getting benefit for their research and other similar works know the facts...Comments of R. Bischof are available above for your kind look.

As far as sources are concerned, there are so many volunteers around who are contributing us, many of datasets are from secondary sources while others have been developed by the valued contributers...

Thanks for this project! It's a great idea. I sent a data request for tehsil administrative boundary data. I'm not sure if you received it. Can you please confirm that you got it and if you haven't, can you provide an email address where I can email my request?

Dear Khadija.....this is Sidra hassan from the Urban Unit......as you know the Chiniot has now become the district so new Tehsil boundaries are now added to this District.Moreover, according to authentic resource The Punjab has now 137 Tehsils rather than 119.Kindly update your data for the further proceedings.

As a livelihood analysis, I would like to use the level 3 shape files to define areas of similar livelihood patterns as it provides a good level of disaggregation
