OpenHeatMap now supports states and provinces worldwide

Afghanexample
One of the most frequent requests for OpenHeatMap has been better support for provinces/states outside of the ones I already offer. The bottleneck's been finding the data in a form I can use, with a lot of help from locals I found a handful of usable maps for India, Mexico and Canada, but it was a slow process. All that changed when I discovered the public domain Natural Earth data set. Taking one map containing top-level administrative districts for every country worldwide, I was able to extract the states and provinces for hundreds of nations. This means you can now upload a spreadsheet containing province names for almost any country and get a detailed map.

This is the map you get when you upload Afghan provinces, and below is a complete list of the examples for the countries I support. I'm very excited to see how people are able to use this, so let me know how you get on.
