This park includes parts of 3 countries, but the polygon for it includes the entirety of all 3 countries:

Also these 3 countries are listed as its children when they should not be (only as alternate countries I believe)

I don't know the correct polygon so I can't fix that, but I would like to check if it is correct to remove the country children (and indeed I don't know if I would have privileges to do this)

Hi David

Thanks for pointing this out. I have removed the countries as children. I have also renamed the feature to Parc National du W. There is a second feature which only covers the part of Nigeria:
http://www.geonames.org/6980619/parc-national-du-w-du-niger.html
I have added this feature as a child of the entire park.

There is no specific boundary polygon for this feature, the displayed polygon has been built from the hierarchy as union of the three country boundaries.


Best Regards

Marc
