File dump: OFAC license holders

Earlier this month, the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control released a 2011 database  containing information about 2,886 license holders in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that I filed in October.
I posted some initial information about the database on Jan. 10, a map showing locations of license holders and some details on the 431 Cuba license holders.
For those of you interested in the entire Excel file that OFAC sent me, you may view and download it here.
OFAC evidently redacted the names of a number of organizations who were granted people-to-people licenses. I am trying to figure out what companies and why. Feel free to weigh in if you have any insight into this.

ORGANIZATION: Register International, Inc.

doesn't make sense: richmond hill [ontario] vs ga [georgia]

also, Schlumberger Global Resources Limited [hamilton, on] & Register International, Inc. [richmond hill, on] don't have phone numbers & web sites

THE BANK OF N.T. BUTTERFIELD & SON LIMITED is located in HAMILTON, Bermuda, not in Hamilton, Ontario how the map show out.

to many mistakes just in three red dots from ontario [???]

It looks like Schlumberger had a Dubai branch:

and a Bermuda address:

Lazaro - thanks for pointing out the mistake in the map. it's computer generated and evidently not entirely accurate in distinguishing cities of the same name
