Marc,

Christchurch, New Zealand is in Canterbury, not Auckland.

I attempted to change it online, but Canterbury was not in the drop down list box for Admin1 zones.

Will you fix this, please?

Thanks,

Carey

Hi Carey

There has been a restructuring in the fips codes for NZ and we had still the previous system in our database. I have updated this (reduced it to 16 adm1), changed the adm1 for Christchurch and changed the feature code to PPLA.

Cheers

Marc

Thanks Marc.

There is an additional set of problems with New Zealand. The admin1 cross reference between the codes in the NZ.ZIP (and allCountries.ZIP) files and the admin1Codest.txt file is inaccurate.

Christchurch, for example, which is ID 2192362 is in admin1 code E9. Yet, when I look in admin1Codes.txt, there is no NZ.E9 entry.

I am sure there are a number of other errors, although I have not documented the specifics. I do know, however, that the following codes do not exist in the admin1Codes.txt file and are used in the country files:

F8, F7, G3, F4, F9, G2, E7, F2, F1 and F5.

Would you please correct the cross reference errors?

Thank you.

Hi Carey

The newest release was not yet deployed on the download server and the file admin1Codes.txt was missing some of the new admin infos.

Cheers

Marc
