Only the shapefiles are additionally offered with geographic coordinates.
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 VG250 (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 VG250 of the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy as at reference date 1 January 2016. For programming reasons, these geometric data are not replaced by a more recent set of data during a given electoral term. They were updated instead with the reported changes of name and territory until reference date 15 April 2020.
6 In addition to the geometric data, the shapefile contains the following area-related attributes:
|LAND_NR||Number of the Land|
|LAND_NAME||Name of the Land|
