Geographic Data

Mathematica has built-in access to large volumes of carefully curated and continually updated geographic data, including both socioeconomic and related data, as well as geospatial data. In addition, Mathematica has sophisticated built-in geodetic capabilities and can read standard geospatial data interchange formats.
