Boundaries of territorial units

Boundaries of territorial units in shapefile format, generalised from data published by the State Land Service according to situation at the beginning of the year. Data and maps on corresponding year are published if there were changes compared to the previous year.

Classification of Administrative Territories and Territorial Units – CATTU.

* At the moment files are not available because after receiving repeated warning from the State Land Service on 13 February 2019, the CSB discontinued publishing geospatial datasets on the website and Latvian Open Data Portal, which allow downloading boundaries of villages, parishes, towns, counties in SHP format.

Claim of the SLS: "SLS demands immediately to discontinue publishing data sets that are not CSB data and for which data holder’s permission is not received."

Use of georeference statistics (data on villages, parishes, towns, counties) is limited if boundaries of territories are unknown, therefore CSB will publish these files again when corresponding agreement will be reached with SLS.

To obtain boundaries of administrative territories and statistical regions, merging geometry according to common attribute values has to be carried out in GIS software (field L0_code for administrative territories, NUTS3_code – for statistical regions).

Boundaries of densely populated areas (experimental statistics)

Densely populated area is a distinct population cluster independent from administrative and territorial division and it is populated by at least 50 persons living or working in buildings that are located no more than 200 meters from each other. Densely populated areas are calculated on 1 January 2019 (considering both place of residence and work), 1 March 2011 and 31 March 2000 (at Population and Housing Census moment, considering only place of residence). Data and metadata are published at the Latvian Open Data Portal.
