Is there a Shapefile of boundaries available.

On the Profile Stats tab called Map it shows the Regions & Counties for each country on a map. Is there a shapefile (or similar format file) available for download that contains this boundary information that I could use for personal use?

Project GC is using the boundary file from OSM (in general). You can download the boundaries from OSM via geofabrik Im not sure, if PGC improve or modify this file, but Im pretty sure that they are generalize some boundaries.

Thanks they are more general boundaries and don't wholly match the geocaching boundaries which was what I was hoping for. A useful start though thanks.

We do not have the data downloadable today. But it's not unreasonable that it could be in the future.
