TAO Hang Dong, Chiang Mai renamed

Effective April 6, the subdistrict administrative organization Hang Dong (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลหางดง) in Chiang Mai province will be renamed to Mae Tha Chang (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลแม่ท่าช้าง), according to the Royal Gazette announcement published today. The name change is probably in preparation of an upgrade to a municipality, as within the same subdistrict the subdistric municipality Hang Dong (เทศบาลตำบลหางดง) is located. Interestingly, the emblem of Hang Dong TAO already shows two elephants (in Thai Chang ช้าง), thus except the name on the bordure the emblem does not need to be changed.

And thanks to the new Streetview data, I was also able to translate the sketch map on the Hang Dong TAO website into the actual coordinates by spotting the office building in the imagery.
