CGIS Map Hunt

The Center for Government and International Studies at Harvard (CGIS)  librarians dug up some digital map collections for me. Here is what they sent:

One person you want to talk to is Damien Evans at Univ Sydney, who directs the Greater Angkor Project. Despite the historical emphasis they have also done some interesting Remote Sensing work on Cambodia.

GADM provides basic vector data for Cambodia (and all other countries). You could start by getting the countries of interest in SE Asia.

Partly supported by Denmark. You may be able to obtain some data from them directly for your research, see:

You may try to contact CSEAS Library, Kyoto University, or the developer, Xianfeng Song.
