borders between Nakhchivan - Armenia - Azerbaijan added

Posted by katpatuka on 15 December 2009 in English (English)

Don't know why but the borders between Nakhchivan - Armenia - Azerbaijan were missing. I added them using source from gadm.org. The exclaves and enclaves of AZ and AM are still missing (were not in the sources)...

From wikipedia:
In Armenia, there exist three Azerbaijani exclaves. Barxudarli (41°00′N 45°13′E) and Yuxari Askipara (41°04′N 45°01′E) are in north-eastern Armenia. The other one, Karki (39°48′N 44°58′E), is located north of the region of Nakhchivan (which is a detached fragment of Azerbaijan stuck between Armenia, Iran and Turkey). Reciprocally, there exists one Armenian exclave, a village called Artsvashen in north-western Azerbaijan (40°38′N 45°31′E).

Location: Areguni, Gegharkunik, Armenia

I should have added "unless you or someone else has obtained separate permission to use this data in OSM and posted this to the wiki, in which case, please could you point me to it?"

Thanks
