I don't know if I have used the right terms for the subject of this thread.
Let explain! I need to know how a Country is subdivided by each type of Administrative children. For example: ITALY (geonameID: 3175395).

The Country of Italy is subdivied by REGION (Abruzzo, Puglia, Marche, etc.):

Each REGION has fcode ADM1.

Abruzzo, for istance (geonameID: 3183560), is subdivided by PROVINCE (in Abruzzo we have Pescara, Teramo, Chieti and L'Aquila):

Each PROVINCE has fcode ADM2.

At the end, Pescara (geonameID: 3171163) is subdivided by CITIES, all with fcode PPL.

NOW, the structure is different by Country. I need to understand:

1. Which are the levels of Subdivisions of each Country;

2. What is the name or label for each ADMx fcode;

After this information I can realize a form that can require dynamically all levels until reach the populated city.

If you have any suggestions in order to get this structure, let me know.

Thanks for your supply.
