FAO releases the 2007 Global Administrative Unit Layer (GAUL)

December 21st, 2006 by Adam

The FAO has made the 2007 GAUL available from the geonetwork site (search for “GAUL”).

The GAUL is comprised of the best, most recent Level 0, 1 and 2 boundaries for every country in the world. There are also quite a few level 3 ,4, 5 etc. boundaries when available. Moving from VMAP or ESRI boundaries to the GAUL would represent a significant improvement the detail and accuracy of your global geodatabase.

You need to contact them for an account which grants download privileges, as the layers are not distributed to the general public.
