See our methodology section for more information.

In an open and machine-readable format DBF, SHP, SHX Data from the Geoportal can be sourced for use with GIS applications (e.g. QGIS, ArcGIS, QGIS) but not for direct download. Shapefiles are available from PhilGIS in multiple formats, which is great! However, they are lacking in resources, as a volunteer effort, and so are lacking in up-to-date data.
