New ccaa file

On March 9, the Department of Provincial Administration updated their ccaa lists of geocodes, the most current version of the TIS1099 standard last updated in 2005. There are however only very few changes to the last version - in the ccaa list with the districts and subdistricts, only four subdistricts had their name change.
  • Thung Pi subdistrict, Chiang Mai (50220200) changed spelling from ทุ่งปี้ to ทุ่งปี๊ [Announcement].
  • Kham Rian (ขามเรียน), Maha Sarakham (44110600) renamed to Sang Saeng (ขามเรียน) [Announcement].
  • Nong Kheng (หนองเข็ง), Bueng Kan (38010300) renamed to Non Sawang (โนนสว่าง) [Announcement].
  • Huai Khayung, Ubon Ratchathani (34152400) changed spelling from ห้วยขะยูง to ห้วยขะยุง. It seems this was a long time error in the DOPA data, as the municipality was already spelled with the short u, and also in all Royal Gazette documents the subdistrict was spelled with short u. I already stumbled on the same issue while processing the 2011 population data.
The RCode list, which contains the codes for registration offices, and therefore most notably the codes for the municipalities, has some more changes, however most (eight) are simply municipal upgrades. The other changes in the list are the following.
  • Bang Len (เทศบาลตำบลบ้านเลน), Ayutthaya province (1486) renamed to Bang Pa In (เทศบาลตำบลบางปะอิน) [Announcement].
  • Na Wa Yai (เทศบาลตำบลนาหว้าใหญ่), Amnat Charoen province (3798) renamed to Pathum Ratchawongsa (เทศบาลตําบลปทุมราชวงศา) [Announcement].
  • Nong Kheng (เทศบาลตําบลหนองเข็ง), Bueng Kan province (3888) renamed to Non Sawang (เทศบาลตําบลโนนสว่าง) [Announcement].
  • Nong Ko (เทศบาลตำบลหนองโก), Khon Kaen province (4082) renamed to Kranuan and upgraded to town municipality (เทศบาลเมืองกระนวน).
Only the last one was news to me, as it wasn't announced in the Royal Gazette yet, nor was it mentioned in the Excel sheet I found at DOLA. Also, some new codes were added.
2177 เทศบาลตำบลพลา
2178 เทศบาลตำบลเนินฆ้อ
4062 เทศบาลตำบลเมืองเก่า
4665 เทศบาลตำบลจุมจัง
5040 เทศบาลตำบลสันปูเลย
6485 เทศบาลตำบลป่ากุมเกาะ
7266 เทศบาลตำบลท้าวอู่ทอง
7267 เทศบาลตำบลกระจัน
7381 เทศบาลตำบลบางกระทึก
Strange is only the case of San Pu Loei, which already has the code 5046, but marked with an asterisk as an obsolete entry, and now added again with the code 5040.
