Hi there

It looks like right now ADM1 codes for Taiwan are the FIPS codes, while the ADM2 codes are a partial list of the ISO 3166-2 codes. Would there be any objections using the ISO codes for ADM1 instead?

You want to abandon the current adm1 and move the adm2 one level up?

First we decide what division on which level to use, then we .can think about which codes to use.

Best

Hey Marc!

This seems to be an issue that's only present in Lienchiang (LIE) and Kinmen (KIN), the districts of Fukien (TW-01). If you look at the seat of Fukien (Jincheng, http://www.geonames.org/search.html?q=Jincheng&country=TW), you can see the codes instead of ADM1, 2 and 3. The hierarchy is correct, the codes just don't seem to be assigned to any names

Kinmen has now the admincode2 KIN
http://www.geonames.org/1676511/kinmen.html
and Lienchiang the code LIE
http://www.geonames.org/6724655/lienchiang.html

all ADM2 for Taiwan have now the respective iso code as admincode2.
