Download spatial data of micro regions


Data at scale 1:250,000, using Geodetic reference system "SIRGAS2000" and CRS(4674)


  code_micro = "all",
  year = 2010,
  simplified = TRUE,
  showProgress = TRUE



5-digit code of a micro 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 micro regions of that state. If code_micro="all" (Default), the function downloads all micro regions of the country.


Numeric. Year of the data in YYYY format. Defaults to 2010.


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
