Caveats / Comments

May 6, 2019 update:

The JAM_adm1_lines shapefile was corrected. The shoreline admlevel code had been 0 instead of 99.

This dataset replaces an earlier HDX dataset that contained smaller scale, more generalized boundaries.

The 'Jamaica administrative level 0 (nation) boundary polygons' shapefile was replaced on 2018 03 28. The previous version was corrupt.
