Map for Egypt governorates, villages and districts. Historic maps are also available. All maps are available for purchause upon request to the dedicated Authority. [No changes from 2013]

Final reviewer: I am unable to respond to most of the questions in a more precise way since the website is down at the time of review (28 November 2014). Yet, if the data is available for purchase, then the data exists (thus, 'unsure' -> 'yes'), is not available for free (thus, 'unsure' -> 'no') and is not openly licensed (thus, 'unsure' -> 'no').

Reviewer comments

Since there is no link the only thing I could find was which apears to be down so I approve the unsure submission.
