South Georgia GIS

Downloadable datasets from the South Georgia GIS, available in the following formats:

  • ESRI shapefile (.shp, zipped)
  • KML (.kml, for Google Earth)
  • Comma-Separated Values (.csv, for Excel)
  • GeoTIFF (zipped)

All data is free for all uses, including commercial

Any questions about the data should be addressed to Adrian Fox, any issues with downloading data (not covered by the comprehensive User Guide) should be addressed to David Herbert.

Note: downloading data may not be the best option!

You should consider the option of connecting directly to the South Georgia GIS data via an OGC WMTS feed GetCapabilities document. Both ArcGIS and QGIS desktop packages work straightforwardly with these, and have the advantage of always connecting to the most up-to-date version of the data.

Assuming you really wish to download a snapshot of the data, it is arranged into convenient thematic folders below. Use the drop-down menu next to the word 'Folder' in the 'Kind' column to access options, including zipped tree download and a shopping cart facility. Alternatively, use the links to navigate the folder structure, and click on the desired file name to display detailed metadata and a download link.
