Country Park .Shp File
Jon Chung made this Freedom of Information request to Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department
Dear Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department,
I am a landscape student at HKU doing a project on mapping land reclamation development in relationship to country parks. I was hoping to receive the .shp file for the Country Parks to put on GIS. This is strictly for study purposes.
How may I proceed to receive this data? Thank you!
Please be advised that the boundaries of country parks in shapefile format
only show the approximate boundaries interpreted from the original gazette
plans of country parks. Therefore, the data are for general
identification and reference purposes only, and require further
interpretation. In fact, the boundaries of country parks and special
areas are available from the gazette plans and existing Lands Department's
publications (e.g. countryside series), or could be viewed from Lands
Department's GeoInfo map website (https://www.map.gov.hk) (Menu -->
"Attractions" -->"Nature Parks" --> "Country Parks"). You may wish to
consider whether the existing information (i.e. publications and website)
could suit your intended use.
In case further information and clarification are required, grateful if
you would contact Mr. Tony HUNG at 2150 6854 to better understand your
study so as to facilitate our processing of the requested information.
for Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation
