The encodings for MapBake will change soon. These changes will reduce the need for future changes in encoding and will allow for additional levels of identification not possible with the current system.

If you have any questions, please ask.

UPDATE: Upcoming changes, expanding the number of places that can be specified, are in alpha test.

These changes will cause some MapBake codes to change. These will be with codes that haves regions specified within the following countries:

Azerbaijan (AZ) - had 78 regions now has 70 regions with 8 sub-codes in 1 region
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BA) - 13 regions now has 3 regions with 10 sub0codes in 1 region
Cape Verde (CV) - had 22 regions now has 2 regions with 22 sub-codes
Dominican Republic (DO) - had 32 regions now has 10 regions with 32 sub-codes
Equatorial Guinea (GQ) - had 7 regions now has 2 regions with 7 sub-codes
Greece (GR) - Greece had 13 regions now has 14 regions with 51 sub-codes
Guinea-Bissau (GW) - had 9 regions now has 4 regions with 8 sub-codes
Indonesia (ID) - had 33 regions now has 7 with 33 sub-codes
Ireland (IE) - had 26 regions now has 4 regions with 26 sub-codes
Marshall Islands (MH) - had 24 regions now has 2 regions with 24 sub-codes
Northern Mariana Islands (MP) - had 4 regions now has 2 regions with *15 sub-codes
Palestinian Territory (PS) - had 18 regions now has 2 regions with 16 sub-codes
Saint Kitts And Nevis (KN) - had 14 regions now has 2 regions with 14 sub-codes

If you have any of these MapBake codes, let me know and I can convert them during my testing.

Other additions that will not affect existing codes (note * by sub-codes means I do not yet have polygon data to include in Google Earth data):

Albania (AL) - 36 sub-codes
American Samoa (AS) - 17 sub-codes
Bangladesh (BD) *64 sub-codes
Belgium (BE) - 29 sub-codes
Chile (CL) - 54 sub-codes
Czech Republic (CZ) - 91 sub-codes
Spain (ES) - 50 sub-codes
Fiji (FJ) - *14 sub-codes
Faroe Islands (FO) - 31 sub-codes
France (FR) - 96 sub-codes
UK (GB) - 217 sub-codes (missing map for GB-LND)
French Guiana (GF) - 22 sub-codes
Guinea (GN) - 33 sub-codes
Italy (IT) - 110 sub-codes
Sri Lanka (LK) - 25 sub-codes
Lithuania (LT) - *66 sub-codes
Luxembourg (LU) - 12 sub-codes
Morocco (MA) - *63 sub-codes
Maldives (MV) - 20 sub-codes
Malawi (MW) - 28 sub-codes
Nepal (NP) - 14 sub-codes
Niue (NU) - 14 sub-codes
French Polynesia (PF) - 48 sub-codes
Phillippines (PH) - 85 sub-codes
RĂ©union (RE) - - 24 sub-codes
Serbia (RS) - 30 sub-codes
Uganda (UG) - 112 sub-codes
Virgin Islands, US (VI) - 20 sub-codes
Zambia (ZM) - *96 sub-codes

If anyone knows about any polygon data for the sub-codes with asterisks (*) that would be free to use, let me know.

I have collected polygon data for all sub-codes except for the following:

Morocco (MA) - 63 sub-codes
Bangladesh (BD) 64 sub-codes
Uganda (UG) - 112 sub-codes
Zambia (ZM) - 96 sub-codes
Lithuania (LT) - 66 sub-codes
Fiji (FJ) - 14 sub-codes
France (FR) - 1 sub-code Meuse (55) has incorrect map
United Kingdom (GB) - 1 sub-code London, City of (LND). The Wikipedia entry says it has a population of around 7000 so I am thinking this may be just a small part of London.

So, that is missing map data for 417 of 5912 places
