Mapit Global is this:
They use a subset of admin boundaries that they take from OSM, so the
question is whether Cyprus' admin boundaries are in OSM or not, and
whether they're tagged appropriately. I guess "imports" is only
relevant if the boundaries are not there yet and if Angelo has a file
of boundaries that they want to add to OSM...
