What class and code should a district of a larger city have?

For Aubing-Lochhausen-Langwied (6946141) class A and code ADM5 was used, but for Bogenhausen (2947022) class P and code PPLX was used. Both are districts of Munich.

The adm5 are usually the official city districts with some administrative functions. Often there is also a related PPL entry, when the admin feature is also a distinct populated place feature.

For Bogenhausen we have two entries, a PPL and a ADM5:

For Aubing-Lochhausen-Langwied we have assumed the ADM5 is spanning several populated places. Thus each of the fractions has a PPL entry:

Sometimes the combined name also has a feature entry, for instance when the postal service use the name as placename and we need to refer to it somehow.

Best Regards

For Aubing-Lochhausen-Langwied (6946141), which is a district of Munich, the class A and code ADM5 are typically used. This indicates that it is an administrative subdivision (class A) within Munich and is classified as an administrative unit at the fifth level (code ADM5) within that hierarchy.

On the other hand, for Bogenhausen (2947022), which is another district of Munich, the class P and code PPLX are used. This indicates that Bogenhausen is a populated place (class P) within Munich, and the code PPLX signifies that it is a section of a populated place that functions as a capital or major city (PPLX).

The difference in class and code between Aubing-Lochhausen-Langwied and Bogenhausen reflects the varying administrative structures and significance of these districts within the city of Munich.
