Completeness This data set contains all of the data that is currently available to Open Development Cambodia (ODC) and is not exhaustive. The development landscape is constantly changing, and there are also additional developments for which data is not available. While ODC takes every effort to ensure that the details in this map are accurate and up to date, some of the protected areas marked on the map may have been downsized or degazzetted since the map was published. Due to the lack of publicly available of spatial information on zoning and degazzettment of protected areas, this dataset does not include information on adjustments.
Process Step Available data was collected by ODC from many sources such as government and NGO agencies in both of pdf and shapefile format. The data in pdf format was then transformed to shapefile format by geo referencing, and digitizing. The data in shapefile format then transformed to SQLITE was finally exported to DB_TABLE, and WMS that can download as KML, Shapefile and GeoJSON files.
