Administrative boundaries are contained in individual layers numbered 1 through 6. These layers are also organized by country. The admin levels will roughly fit these general descriptions. Please note that not all countries will have all levels populated, and features may not exactly match the descriptions in the following table:

Administrative Level Administrative Area
Level 1 Country
Level 2 State, Province, or Subdivision
Level 3 Second Level Administrative Division
Level 4 Third Level Administrative Division
Level 5 Fourth Level Administrative Division
Level 6 Fifth Level Administrative Division

A hierarchy text file is included for each country with multiple administrative levels. This file relates lower-order admin areas to associated higher-order areas with a separate record for each unique lower-order area name.

All boundaries are depicted with accurate shorelines and are not buffered.
