ShareGeo Open was a repository of geospatial data, previously hosted by EDINA. ShareGeo Open has been discontinued, so its datasets have been migrated to this Edinburgh DataShare Collection, for preservation, in accordance with the agreement signed by all ShareGeo depositors.

Most of the file formats in this Collection (other than GeoTIFFs) can be viewed and analysed using a GIS package: Information on working with geospatial data using GIS .
