3 The geometric data of the constituencies and – if applicable – of the rural districts and towns not attached to an administrative district are strongly generalised compared with the data source VG1000 (see also footnotes 1 and 5).
4 The constituency boundaries are represented as red lines and the administrative boundaries of the rural districts and towns not attached to an administrative district as blue lines. If the boundaries coincide, the line is of a mixed colour depending on the zoom level chosen.
5 The basis of the geometric data is the product VG1000 of the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (see also footnote 1).
6 In addition to the geometric data, the shapefile contains following area-related attributes:
|LAND_NR||Number of the Land|
|LAND_NAME||Name of the Land|
