Caveats / Comments

May 20, 2019 update: ITOS vetted and configured files and gazetteer substituted ITOS live services added

April 26, 2019 update: Persian feature names added.

April 19, 2019 update: The administrative level 0 shapefile was replaced into the shapefile resource because it had been an inconsistent projection.

April 18, 2019 update: The shapefile resource was replaced with the correct zip file.

The source document, obtained from UNCHR, contained P-codes like '20IRN031003'. These are standardized to the ‘IR031003’ format in the shapefiles and under the standard field names in the gazetteer.

The administrative level 0 KMZ file was created from a generalized (to tolerance 0.01 degree) version of the shapefile because the shapefile had more than 30,000 vertices. The shapefile and geodatabase are the original version.
