This data category requires a high level national map. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km).
  • Markings of national roads
  • National borders
  • Marking of streams, rivers, lakes, mountains.
  • Updated at least once a year.

Data Location


There is a GIS map in 1 : 250,000, and even 1 : 50,000 from 2013 on the" INSTITUTO GEOGRÁFICO NACIONAL DE LA REPÚBLICA ARGENTINA" website. No license was found on the website, and therefore it is not openly licensed. Information is not readily accessible and much information you have to pay

Reviewer comments

After my review I changed a few things:

  1. This is not a free service offered (it was set to not sure).
  2. Since there isn't alot of clear information on the website I changed a few things to "unsure" status: public availability, downloadable in bulk, and updated timely.
