Senate Districts (Volební obvod pro volby do Senátu) of the Czech Republic

Description

Function returning data frame of the 81 Senate Districts for the Czech Republic as sf polygons. It takes a single parameter resolution - high res (default) or low res polygons.

Usage

senat_obvody(resolution = "high")

Arguments

resolution

Should the function return high or low resolution shapefile? Allowed values are "high" (default) and "low". This parameter affects only the geometry column, all other fields remain the same.

Details

Due to package size constraints the data are stored externally (and a working internet connection is required to use the package).

The data is current to February 2021 (last update was in 2016). Downloaded size of high resolution shapefile is 10 MB, size of the low res object is negligible (but a working internet is still required, as the object is not internal).

Value

sf data frame with 81 rows of 3 variables + geometry

OBVOD

Code of the district; left padded with zero in case of districts one to nine.

SIDLO

Seat of the senator.

NAZEV_VO

Formal name of the district.
