Access to map.gov.hk datasets through geodata.gov.hk

The request was partially successful.

Dear Lands Department,

I would like to get access to a number of geodatasets currently available on map.gov.hk but missing from geodata.gov.hk

The list of missing sets notably includes:
- non-govWIFI wifi access points
- bus and tram stops, ferry piers and MTR exits
- parking spaces and parking lots
- gas/petrol stations and EV charging points
- convenient stores, markets, supermarkets and malls
- hiking trails
etc.

If the sets are not immediately available, would it be possible to know if the availability is planned and obtain an estimate release date?

Thanks in advance

Yours faithfully,
Alex Viale

Dear Alex,

Thanks for your email regarding the availability of the below datasets on
the Hong Kong GeoData Store.

(1)- non-govWIFI wifi access points
(2)- bus and tram stops, ferry piers and MTR exits
(3)- parking spaces and parking lots
(4)- gas/petrol stations and EV charging points
(5)- convenient stores,  markets, supermarkets and malls
(6)- hiking trails
At present, the above datasets are not available on the Hong Kong GeoData
Store. Nevertheless, we would approach the data contributing parties to
explore possible collaboration for releasing the required datasets (1),
(2), (4) except gas/petrol stations and (6) on the Hong Kong GeoData Store
for free download and reuse by the users.

For the required datasets (3), (4) except EV charging points, and (5),
they are included in our GeoCommunity Database, iGeoCom for purchase by
the public.  There is currently no plan to include these datasets to the
Hong Kong GeoData Store for free download by the users. For your further
information, detailed map features of iGeoCom can be obtained from our
website at
