    Reviewer comments

    All characteristics are viewable under the NAMRIA Map Viewer; search under "boundary" for the Layers: Regional, Provincial, Municipal Boundaries. However, the dataset is not downloadable as a letter needs to be written to NAMRIA for access. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
