Caveats / Comments

The administrative level 2 (district / muang) features do not correspond exactly to the Lao PDR - Population Statistics tables. This is being analyzed and it is hoped that a solution will be provided soon.

The administrative level 0 (country) boundary polygon KMZ file was generated from a generalized version of the shapefile due to the number of vertices. The generalization tolerance was 0.001 degrees. The posted shapefile was not altered.
