World Boundaries Premium

World Boundaries Premium provides comprehensive coverage of global administrative geographies combined with neighborhood, suburb, land use, and postal geographies. Administrative boundaries from multiple sources for over 200 countries and territories are aggregated in a single dataset, with a single file and table structure for ease of integration.

Boundaries allow users to perform a host of geographic and analytic functions, such as visualizing and manipulating data for map representation or linking company data to accurately locate customers and constituents. They also support a host of forward and reverse geocoding functions, geo-tagging, and geofencing.

The product contains two versions. The geo-tagged version provides all boundaries as one flat boundary file where each polygon represents a unique set of administrative values to the most granular level. The display version provides separate layers for each administrative level.
