    I think it is inappropriate to label the island of Taiwan as the Republic of China.aiwan Province.Internationally, the island of Taiwan is usually labeled Taiwan or Taiwan province,for example in the UN.UN Geospatial Information SectionI think it is inappropriate to sign the island of Taiwan as the Republic of China.Actually,I believe that the administrative divisions should be marked in the light of the United Nations map. It's a great weather software and I don't think it should be political.
    I hope to get your response as soon as possible.
    Tanks yours help.

    Please also note: For every language, a different place name label can be displayed, so please choose your correct language and data display.

    Further discussion of place name and language issues or disputes should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)

    In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.

    Thank you :)
