Administrative Boundaries

File: Geodatabase and Shape files of Timor-Leste's Administrative Boundary Units

Data includes:
  • Polygon: districts
  • Polygon: subdistricts
  • Polygon: sucos (villages)

These data were produced under the advisory activities for mapping at DNTPSC from 2002 to 2007, led by Mr. Wijn Langeraar in 2007.

Original administrative boundary dataset were acquired from 1:25,000 topographic map (Peta Bumi series) made by Bakosurtanal, Indonesia. These data were modified for the adoption to the coastline data from 1:50,000 topographic map made by Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation (DIGO), Australia.

Districts, Sub-districts and Sucos are promulgated in Diploma Ministerial No. 9/2004 by the Ministry of State Administration.
  • Because one administrative unit may be composed of more than two singlepart polygons, .the number of districts (13) is different from that of polygons (17).
  • Because one administrative unit may be composed of more than two singlepart polygons, .the number of sub-districts (65) is different from that of polygons (69).
  • Because one administrative unit may be composed of more than two singlepart polygons, .the number of sucos (442) is different from that of polygons (456).
