Abstract
Efforts to spatially understand and map elections in India depend on geodata which have so far only been available from commercial sources. This dataset in contrast provides GIS shapefiles of Indian parliamentary and assembly constituency boundaries at the time of the 2014 general elections under an open license. These shapefiles were generated from raw polling booth point localities published by the Election Commission using a heatmap algorithm. While this automated approach reduces accuracy somewhat, and even though raw data accuracy varies by district, the shapefiles should generally be accurate enough for most visualization and analytical tasks.
