The Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the U.S. Department of State has
recently released an updated copy of the
high-resolution international boundaries. Called the Large-Scale
International Boundaries (LSIB), the dataset can be downloaded from the HIU
The metadata associated with the files describes the data, and how disputed
borders are encoded. Additionally, there is some guidance about how disputed
borders should be represented cartographically (at least on USG maps). It
should be noted that these boundaries are the official USG boundaries and
may not line up with interior Admin 1 boundaries from other sources.
