Positional Accuracy There​ was​ a​ constrain​ on​ the​ boundary​ of​ the​ protected​ area​ because​ the​ source​ of​ the​ map​ was​ not​ clear​ enough​ to​ digitize.​ As​ a​ result,​ ODC​ mapper​ team​ used​ the​ boundary​ from​ the​ dataset​ of​ natural​ protected​ areas​ to​ complement​ the​ shape​ boundary.
Completeness ODC​ team​ will​ update​ a​ new​ management​ zone​ of​ protected​ areas​ when​ it​ is​ established.
Process Step ODC​ team​ downloaded​ the​ resource​ document​ from​ General​ Department​ of​ Royal​ Gazette​ and​ computer​ service,​ in​ PDF​ format,​ and​ digitized​ the​ appendix​ map​ with​ QGIS.​ Since​ the​ boundary​ was​ not​ clear​ enough,​ the​ dataset​ of​ natural​ protected​ area​ was​ used​ to​ complement​ to​ the​ boundary​ in​ the​ map.
Lineage Sub-decree​ on​ the​ establishment​ of​ management​ zone​ of​ protected​ area​ from​ Royal​ Gazette.
