Caveats / Comments

Unusually, three administrative level 2 features: Las Golondrinas (EC9001); Manga del Cura (EC9003); and El Piedrero (EC9004), each containing only one administrative level 3 feature, do not belong to any province. Their administrative level 1 attribute is ‘zona no delimitada’.

Administrative level 3, with 1,040 features does not match the Ecuador COD Population Statistics (COD-PS) tables which have 1,025 features.

The administrative level 0 and 1 KMZ files were converted from generalized (0.0001 degree tolerance) shapefiles. The shapefiles in the dataset are the original versions.
