4  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 VG250 (see also footnotes 1 and 6).

5  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.

6  The basis of the geometric data is the product VG250 of the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (see also footnote 1).

7  In addition to the geometric data, the shapefile contains the following area-related attributes:

WKR_NR Constituency number
WKR_NAME Constituency name
LAND_NR Number of the Land
LAND_NAME Name of the Land
