About GeoQuery / Custom Data Requests

Custom Data Requests

GeoQuery does a lot, but not everything. You can submit your own shape files, GeoJSONs, or other requests here. Processing time will vary depending on the complexity and size of your data, and what data you request from us. Please note that we can only extract data that is already in GeoQuery, even if you provide us with a custom shape file. Additionally, we cannot do custom extracts for aid-related datasets. Please use the GeoQuery interface for this.

Before we process your request, you may receive a confirmation email from geo@aiddata.org to the account provided in the form below. All data or other communication will be sent to this email.

If you are looking for the GeoQuery tool, you can find it here: GeoQuery.org.

Notes on Specific Fields

Datasets and Parameters (Required)

In this text box, please provide us with a list of the data and the filters you would like us to provide in the extract. You can only request data currently in GeoQuery. Please provide as much detail as possible about the datasets in GeoQuery you would like extracted (for example, "World Bank Geocoded Aid Data v1.4.2, Sectors including Energy Generation and Supply, Mineral Resources and Mining"; "Precipitation (Yearly Average), Mean; Max and Min for each boundary; Years 1985 - 2014";). If you request "all data", we will provide all of the information in GeoQuery, including aggregated top-level aid information (i.e., all World Bank or GEF aid that has gone to a region in our database).

Custom Boundaries (Required)

Upload the boundary file to which you want data to be extracted. We currently accept JSON files or zipped shapefiles to represent boundaries. If you upload something other than polygons (i.e., points or lines), please let us know what buffer you need applied. Uploads are currently limited to 25mb; if your file exceeds this limit, please email us directly at geo@aiddata.org so we can arrange an alternative.
