Download East Africa GIS Data – ArcGIS Layer Package Files (free)

Accurate East Africa GIS layer packages that fit together

Simply drag and drop East Africa GIS packages from your downloads folder into your ArcMap table of contents. Our East Africa GIS data have been developed utilizing topologies, so they generally fit very closely. You may download the entire East Africa GIS data/Horn of Africa GIS data using the link immediately below, or scroll down for individual countries (listed alphabetically).

I have just finished organizing, redrawing, and checking the administrative data. Water bodies, roads, and other files are still in process so please check back soon. These layer packages are for the most part up to date with 2014 borders, although Ethiopia is currently in the process of redrawing some woredas and zones, and it is still unclear what new administrative units may emerge. We will have that data as soon as the current issues with the zones have been ironed out.

Please note that all boundaries are approximate and do not imply endorsement or recognition by Map East Africa or any of its affiliates.
