Updating polygon data for Belarus
July 02, 2019 11:14AM
Our polygon data for Belarus was from 2017, back then OSM had SIX regions for the country. Now it has SEVEN, which seems more correct. The city Minsk itself is its own region.

I am currently in the processing of importing the new data for the country.

Also when we imported this back in 2017, the polygon data for their counties was very broken. So broken that the polygons themselves weren't closed properly. I will now import those as well, since they seem fine now.

This was triggered by someone requesting a challenge checker here: https://project-gc.com/forum/read?8,30366 . The requester, rightfully, preferred a checker with the correct number of regions.

I'll get back to you with a diff of the region names, if there are any, once I get that far. Probably at least another hour.

The region names will be the same as before, but with these two changes:
* "Minsk" will be a small region over the capital city instead of the whole area around it.
* "Minsk (region)" will replace the old Minsk.

128 counties will be added. 0 before this.
