Major changes in place names, eastern Indonesia.

Description

Spelling changes introduced in 1973 are not shown on this map.  The map shows a relatively small proportion of name changes in Papua (West New Guinea, where Europeans more frequently applied Western names to places than they did in Java or Sumatra.  A great many of the non-indigenous names in this region were changed when Indonesia took charge in 1963.
