Caveats / Comments

Part of the boundaries between ADM3 feature "Bimachuk" [SS070901], "Melut" [SS070903] , "Kaka" [SS070802] have approximated and differ from the original inputs, in order to better represent the borders that follow the Nile.

These interim shapefiles contain 35 topological gaps and 18 topological overlaps that will be resolved shortly.

The Abyei region does not exist in the Admin1 layer but is included in the Admin2 layer (and ADM3 shapefile). For representation on map, the north of the Abyei region boundary should be dotted and the fill colour should be the same as neighbouring countries. The undetermined boundary between South Sudan and Sudan should be dashed and the undetermined boundary of the Illemi triangle, between Kenya and South Sudan should be dashed for the two sides within South Sudan and the third side which borders Kenya should be solid. The relevant shapefile line features are split to enable this.
