Downloading environment data for Denmark

This post is very Denmark-specific. I was annoyed that downloading environmental data from the ministry of the environment was so cumbersome.

Long story made short, here are download URLs for environmental data:

Dataset URL
Kirkebyggelinjer KIRKEBYGGELINJER_SHAPE.zip
Skovbyggelinjer SKOVBYGGELINJER_SHAPE.zip
Åbeskyttelseslinjer AA_BES_LINJER_SHAPE.zip
Søbeskyttelseslinjer SOE_BES_LINJER_SHAPE.zip
EF Fuglebeskyttelsesområder EF_FUGLE_BES_OMR_SHAPE.zip
EF Habitatområder EF_HABITAT_OMR_SHAPE.zip
RAMSAR-områder RAMSAR_OMR_SHAPE.zip
Naturvildtreservat NATUR_VILDT_RESERVAT_SHAPE.zip

There are more. I’ll add them when I have the time. Why there ministry homepage does not provide direct links like this is beyond me.
