Hi!

I was wondering why the same ADM1 name would be assigned to several ADM1 codes. For example, "Amazonas" is assigned to both ADM1 Code= 3665361 and ADM1 Code= 3689982.

Thanks,
Elizabeth

Hi Elisabeth

Because these are two different entities. One is a state in Brazil the other a departement in Colombia.

Best Regards

Marc
