The Who’s On First Changelog - November 2019

We’ve updated the Who’s On First changelog to include updates completed through the month of November 2019.

In November, we began updating neighbourhood, macrohood, and borough records for various localities in India. We also curated new localized label values for regions in France, fixed various name translations of localities in eight countries, and adjusted neighbourhood geometries in Scotland.

Take a look below for a more detailed changelog. A special thanks to all of our contributors - enjoy!
