## Boundaries

The following figure illustrates an example of boundaries.

The layer's content is defined as follows.

• Layer name: boundaries
• Geometry types: line

### Boundary Properties (common)

The following properties are used to define a boundary.

• kind - Boundaries can be one of the options listed below. For disputed borders, see kind:xx below.
• kind_detail - This is an integer that maps kind to more specific information about the feature. For possible values, see below.
• sort_rank - This property is a suggestion in which order to render features. The value is an integer where smaller numbers indicate that features should be "behind" features with larger numbers.
• min_zoom - This property indicates a suggested minimum zoom at which the boundary line should become visible.

### Boundary Properties (common-optional)

• kind:xx - An alternate for kind according to the political viewpoint of a country, where xx is a lowercase ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code (for example, de or es). To show features according to a particular viewpoint, use kind:xx if it exists; otherwise, fall back to kind.

The following are code examples of the India-Pakistan border in different viewpoints.

International view:

kind: disputed
kind:pk: unrecognized_disputed
kind:in: unrecognized_disputed


India view:

kind:in: country
kind:pk: unrecognized_country


Pakistan view:

kind:in: unrecognized_country
kind:pk: country

• name:left - See Feature Names above.

• name:left:* - See Name Localization above.
• name:right - See Feature Names above.
• name:right:* - See Name Localization above.

#### Boundary kind_detail Values

• 2 - for countries
• 4 - for states

#### Boundary kind_detail Values for Certain Areas in core

The following list of kind_detail values is only applicable for some regions of the world within the core layer parameter. For more information about the layer parameters available in the HERE Vector Tile Service, see Layer Parameter.

Below are these kind_detail values within the core layer parameter for Japan:

• 7 - for cities with locality kind
• 9 - for subdistricts with oaza kind
