The two administrative level 2 features that were previously represented as comprising the ‘Negros Island Region’ administrative level 1 features [then coded PH1800000000] have been restored to administrative level 1 features PH060000000 and PH070000000. (Negros Island Region officially existed only from 29 May 2015 to 9 August 2017.) This adjustment has been propagated to administrative levels 2 and 3.

Due to the complexity and extraordinarily large number of polygon features KMZ files have been generated but their quality cannot be verified. ITOS have prepared three versions of the administrative 0 layer to assist mapping: • phl_admbnda_adm0_psa_namria_itos_20200529 with one part, as usual, • phl_admbnda_adm0_3part_psa_namria_20180130 with three multipart sections covering the North, middle and South portions of the country, and • phl_admbnda_adm0_singlepart_psa_namria_20180130 with all 3,656 polygons represented as separate features.
