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 effort to ensure that both spatial and non-spatial data are accurate and up to date, some information of the CFs may have changed since the dataset and map were published. Moreover, additional CFs, which is 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 Prakas from MAFF and report from Forestry Administration 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.
Lineage The reference sources were taken from Prakas from Ministry of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries from 2008-2014 and Community Forestry Statistic in Cambodia 2013 from Forestry Administration Department of Forest and Community Forestry.
