Features with polygons
Polygons are available mainly for admin divisions. Additionally also for other features like islands, lakes and populated places. The availability depends on the availability of the original datasource. For Italy for instance the national statical office publishes polygons for populated places. In most other countries support for polygons by the national mapping agency is restricted to administrative divisions.
