Administrative and Settlement Division

Data of administrative and settlement units is derived from the Land Cadastre. Attribute data is derived from the official Estonian Administrative and Settlement Classification (EHAK) maintained by the Statistics Estonia. A regular snapshop is taken on January 1 each year, but intermediary snapshots are taken when the changes in the Cadastre are significant.
