INEGI is the Mexican National Statistical and Mapping Agency.
The Institute generates geographic information of the surface, vegetation, climate, soil, water and communities, among others. Represented through paper charts and digital mapping. Information on the characteristics of the territory and environment offered in paper charts and digital files are:
- Place Names
- Natural Resources
- Urban Mapping
- Geostatistical Framework
Among other things, they are responsible for maintaining a reference set of geospatial data that has recently been released under an open license. This is the official announcement (in Spanish).
The Institute also produces basic statistical information for Mexico, which is obtained from three sources: censuses, surveys and administrative records and derived statistics, from which it generates demographic, social and economic indicators as well as national accounts.
INEGI data and OSM
A plan is emerging to import some of the INEGI datasets into OSM. See Import/Catalogue for details.
