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.

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.
