Title: Myanmar: States/Divisions & Townships Overview Map
Date of publication: December 2007
Description/subject: Myanmar Standardized Place Names and P-codes: In Myanmar there has long been confusion with multiple versions of transliterated place names in use by various agencies. The Myanmar Information Management Unit (MIMU) has taken on the task of overseeing a comprehensive translation of place names into a common system that is promoted by IASC members and other organizations.

Names were translated/transliterated to English by a team supervised by the MIMU. The names were also cross-referenced with the SLRD names and the names in use by various UN Agencies and NGOs. Kachin, Chin and Shan names (i.e. non-Burmese names) were reviewed by local experts in the field. The final translation was completed in 2007....What are P-codes?
