James made this Freedom of Information request to Civil Engineering and Development Department

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Civil Engineering and Development Department,

I would like to make a request for the shapefiles (.shp) of solid and superficial geology maps of Hong Kong, as shown in the following links:

Although the requested data has been made public in the form of interactive online maps, it is not easy to use the data on a GIS platform nor to replot the data in vectorized files (i.e., shapefiles) because there are extensive details in the maps, particularly the superficial map. Making the shapefiles of the solid and superficial geology maps public will benefit the community of geological hazard mitigation.

The requested data will be used for academic purposes only. Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,
