Completeness This dataset contains all of the data that is currently available to Open Development Cambodia (ODC) and is not exhaustive. While ODC takes every efforts to ensure that both spatial and non-spatial data are accurate and up to date, some information of the community fisheries may have changed since the dataset and map were published. Moreover, additional community fisheries, which are not yet included here, may have been approved and established.
Process Step Available data was collected from many sources by ODC’s mappers such as the royal gazette of Cambodia's government, government website and reports of the governmental ministries in hard and soft copies of pdf format.The data in pdf format was then transformed into shapefile format. When the map is not available in the sources, the data is digitized by based on the location stated in the source. The data in shapefile format was finally exported to CSV, KMZ, and GEOJSON files.
