Download spatial data of Brazil's Immediate Geographic Areas


The Immediate Geographic Areas are part of the geographic division of Brazil created in 2017 by IBGE. These regions were created to replace the "Micro Regions" division. Data at scale 1:250,000, using Geodetic reference system "SIRGAS2000" and CRS(4674)


  code_immediate = "all",
  year = 2019,
  simplified = TRUE,
  showProgress = TRUE



6-digit code of an immediate region. If the two-digit code or a two-letter uppercase abbreviation of a state is passed, (e.g. 33 or "RJ") the function will load all immediate regions of that state. If code_immediate="all" (Default), the function downloads all immediate regions of the country.


Numeric. Year of the data in YYYY format. Defaults to 2019.


Logic FALSE or TRUE, indicating whether the function should return the data set with 'original' spatial resolution or a data set with 'simplified' geometry. Defaults to TRUE. For spatial analysis and statistics users should set simplified = FALSE. Borders have been simplified by removing vertices of borders using ⁠st_simplify{sf}⁠ preserving topology with a dTolerance of 100.


Logical. Defaults to TRUE display progress bar.


An ⁠"sf" "data.frame"⁠ object
