This polygon shapefile represents the commune boundaries of the Territory of French Southern and Antarctic Lands for 2010. These are the level 5 administrative divisions (ADM5). French communes are roughly equivalent to townships or incorporated municipalities. This dataset is intended for researchers, students, and policy makers for reference and mapping purposes, and may be used for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production, or to provide a basemap to support graphical overlays and analysis with other spatial data.
