Not entirely, IMO
A barangay (which I treat as a single polygon unit) is within a
municipality (a collection of barangay polygons) which is within a
province (a collection municipality polygons) with a few exceptions of
course and so on and so forth.

This is a rendering problem.

I think I removed them in Marikina

let's discuss this more.

Incidentally, at work, I'm looking at using the NCSB codes for
codifying provincial polygons.  Does anybody use this at all?
