Additional format support SHX + DBF was added as it is part of the shapefile. Additionally, there is proper Coordinates Projection support. Corrected the field "data being up to date" as the metadata of the dataset indicates it is last updated April 2016 which is within the year. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. No clear license was stated for the dataset and was unable to find any national law that supports open license.
