This page contains a collection of data sources for people who like data visualization and mapping. The list includes places where you can download shapefiles for use in GIS products, including ESRI’s ArcGIS suite.

I have not verified any of these datasets for accuracy – you should only trust your own verifications. That goes for spatial information sometimes included in the tables, like area, length, or geographic coordinates. Any GIS software will be able to recalculate these based on your preferred projection.

If you cannot find what you seek, contact me or leave a comment.
