Adm3 covers towns, districts and neighborhoods

23 English names are translated to multiple Arabic names in the Admin 2 layer; there is not a 1:1 relationship between the English and Arabic names in the admin2 layer.

19 Admin2 units along the Nile have duplicate English names within the same Admin1 unit. All of these features have unique Arabic names.

The Admin2 layer has 14 units with an Admin2 name of "Zemam Out" and each one belongs to a unique Admin1 unit. However, there are no "Zemam Out" Admin2 units in the Admin3 layer.
