Community protected areas (2006-2021)

This dataset contains data of community zones in the natural protected areas such as the national park, biodiversity conservation corridor, wildlife sanctuary, and protected landscape with issuing dates starting from 2006 to 2021. Due to the lack of publicly available spatial information on zoning and degazzettment, a number of community zones are represented in pin-points on the map. The data was collected from government agencies in hardcopy and PDF format and manually digitized. Geographic data is encoded in the WGS 84, Zone 48 North coordinate reference system.
