"Terms and Conditions of Use" is attached below for your compliance,
please.  Please read carefully and return a signed reply slip to our

Please be reminded that the shapefile format of the 2019-2022 boundary
maps of Existing Villages and/ or Market Towns only show the boundaries

Dear Home Affairs Department Headquarters,
Thank you for the response and information. I am requesting the data to run analysis against open source data from OSM to compare the quality of names, amount of locations, and to confirm whether or not locations in OSM are correct based on your agency's official government data. I am requesting it to essentially do a quality compare to existing open source data.

Yours faithfully,

Justin
