The changes were not made to the existing, V913, dataset but instead, the entire dataset is being replaced with a lower resolution and less-detailed map dataset extracted and modified from the CIA 2001 shape file.

Since this is a very reduced version of the world dataset, the # of islands representing a particular country has been greatly reduced in many instances. There were 457,432 observations, 258 countries and 8 variables in the 9.1.3 version and only 122,335 observations, 261 countries and 8 variables in 9.2. The entire world dataset imported into GIS with topological errors, now imports without errors.

  • Continent 96 was South Pacific in 9.1.3 but has been renamed Oceania in 9.2.
  • A new continent number 97, Antarctica has been added.
  • Brunei was under continent 96 in 9.1.3 but now included in continent 95.
  • French Southern Territories was in continent 96, now in continent 97.
  • Gibraltar was incorrectly listed as continent 397 in 9.1.3, now added to continent 93.
  • Heard & McDonald Islands removed from continent 96 in 9.1.3 to continent 97. Indonesia was listed as continent 96 now included with continent 95. Philippines moved from continent 96 to continent 95.
  • St Helena moved from continent 91 to continent 94.


  • Antarctica (143), East Timor (626) South Georgia/South Sandwich (953) are included in 9.2 but were not in the 9.1.3 version.
  • Tasmania was missing from australia (160) at 9.1.3 and is now included.
  • Newfoundland was missing from canada (260) at 9.1.3, now included.
  • Cuba (300) was not correctly represented at 9.1.3, now appears correctly.
  • Galapagos Islands was not included in 9.1.3, now included with Ecuador (325).
  • HongKong (435) was not included as part of China in 9.1.3, now displays with China (280).
