Regions & Boundaries map data for Chile

Regions & Boundaries map data provides a geographic breakdown of Chile for visualisation and analysis purposes. Using GIS or mapping software, colours can be assigned to these regions to form a thematic map, also known as a choropleth map. Thematic maps are visually powerful and a simple but effective way to communicate a variable (e.g. sales figures) across a geographic area. Regions can be political/administrative, postcode or small areas often connected with a census. With seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries, this data product is ideal for international projects.

Further enabling geographic analysis, Regions & Boundaries for Chile can also be supplemented with statistics such as socio-demographics, purchasing power and consumer profiles. This product is available in a number of popular GIS data formats.

The Republic of Chile is situated in the western part of South America, the ribbon-like strip of land between the Andes to its east and its western Pacific coastline. It is the southernmost country in the world, and the closest to Antarctica. Sharing land borders with Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, Chile also controls the Pacific islands of Juan Fernandez, Isla Salas y Gomez, Desventuradas as well as Easter Island. It also claims territory in Antarctica. The capital is Santiago.
Chile made up much of the Incan Empire, until Spanish conquests in the sixteenth century, which failed to conquer the south-central part of the country. After independence from Spain, by 1830 Chile was becoming a stable authoritarian republic. By the end of the nineteenth century, after territorial wars with Peru and Bolivia, Chile emerged geo-politically as the country we are familiar with today.
Always relatively stable and free of coups and arbitrary governments which characterise so much of South America, Chile did experience severe political polarisation in the 1960s and 1970s, culminating in a coup which installed Pinochet as the leader of the new military dictatorship. The regime finally ended in 1990. The country is now run as a representative, democratic republic, divided into sixteen regions, fifty-six provinces and 348 communes.
One of South America’s most prosperous nations, Chile has had a fairly stable economy. With a wealth of mineral resources, copper mining alone accounts for 20% of Chilean GDP and Chile produces one third of the world’s copper. Although not such a significant economic sector, Chilean agriculture is directed towards high value fruits and vegetables for export including beef, poultry, grapes, asparagus cherries and wine. Due to the dramatic topography of the country, arable land constitutes less than 3% of the territory. The finance and service sectors are expanding and tourism is a growing focus for the economy.
Over 89% of Chile’s people live in urban areas, with 40% living in and around Santiago. A diverse population, Chile is home to immigrants from all over Europe and other parts of the world, including a number of Latin American countries.
A rich culture driven by Andean heritage and European migrants, Chile is home to an array of influences. Architecture is strongly influenced by Spanish, English and French settlers as well as German migrants in the south, responsible for the Bavarian styles of architecture and food. Long considered a country of poets, Chile has a strong literary heritage. Traditional music styles and folklore continue still. Chile’s music scene is vibrant and varied. The national sport is soccer.
On the world stage, Chile is a member of the United Nations, OECD and the Pacific Alliance.
