GeoCommunity Database (iGeoCom)

GeoCommunity Database (iGeoCom) is a set of geo-coded community information embedded with spatial reference in textual database format. It contains a collection of location points of interest in the community, such as school, clinic, library, sports ground, convenient store, railway station access, etc, with comprehensive address information, contact details and other related service information.

This Database can be used to carry out location search function for various facilities in a non-map based environment. Alternatively, it can also be used with other SMO's digital map bases for developing community-oriented GIS applications through the use of the geo-reference numbers.

The database is available for download as a single dataset covering the whole territory of Hong Kong in MS ACCESS, MS EXCEL and CSV format.

  1. Education, e.g. Child Care Centre, Schools, University, etc.
