I'll be hunting for some new country in the next weeks, on of them is "Bosnia and Herzegovina".

Could you add regions and counties for it? Is there an own badge for it?

Tanks, Ulf

There is a badge for Bosnia, so if we would add region support it would be enabled. Do you have any insight in how many regions the should have? And if they are divided in some lower level as well? We usually import data from Openstreetmap, and I can see that their admin level 4 has 3 regions. But from what I can see, there is no other level that has complete coverage of the country.

I also tried to read up on the fact about number of regions. Usually wikipedia mentions in it one way or another, but I could not find any facts here.

Meanwhile I will add the country to our polygon-todo-list.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a very complex structure, ethnic and politically..

They habe 2 entities (Federacija Bosne i Hercegovine + Republika Srpska) and the district Brčko. (see blue, red and yellow in https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/62/Bosnia_and_Herzegovina_Political.png). These probably are the three regions in admin level 4 you were talking about.

Looking vor Bosnia in
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:boundary%3Dadministrative
I find admin level 5 with 10 cantones. Maybe this is interesting as "county" level in PGC. Or even better the lowest polical level with 142 "Gemeinden" (općine bzw. opštine). That's probably the lowest level you see in Bosnia_and_Herzegovina_Political.png. Which admin level () this is in OSM I don't know. Can you find that out?

Sorry, that all I could find out.

Thank, Ulf
