Political Boundary Point Features

VPF Narrative Table for "Political Boundary Point Features":

Administrative area (FA001) which were cartographically judged too small to be portrayed as area features were portrayed as point features. The listing of country names for the "na2" attribute is incomplete and contains errors in the spelling or punctuation of the code or the name itself as verified in the Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS PUB 10-4) "Countries, Dependencies, Areas of Special Sovereignty, and Their Principal Administrative Divisions", April 1995.

The following is a list of those codes which should be added or corrected.
