    Reviewer comments

    Added the Administrative Boundaries found at the Official Data Portal --> It points to the same data by the submitter; however it has a Creative Commons license in contradiction to what was reported by @robertharm in discussion Forum in the License accompanying the data at the publisher. Updated and minor correction for format of data. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
