Put more details on how to download as the Download link is way to the bottom and was not obvious at first. Changed B6 to No as dataset was last updated in 2015; so is not up-to-date. Updated the available formats. Municipal data can be downloaded direct via WFS. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
