Are you asking about where I got the information used in the site? If so, it comes from many different places and research.

Or are you asking about the lines (equator, meridian, etc)? That is also from a few places but you can also zoom in on google earth or maps to find it.
MapBake can be used to identify any combination of 40,684 places.

There are 256 top level ISO codes. Of these:

  • 8 (3%) have no regions identified.

  • 20 (8%) have only a single level of subdivision

  • 228 (89%) have two levels of subdivision. Of these:

    • 1 has map data for none of the second level subdivisions

    • 42 have map data for some of the second level subdivisions

    • 185 have map data for all the second level subdivisions


This link is a MapBake page that will generate a color coded kmz file showing those places

All the 256 top level codes, and the 3208 first level subdivisions have complete polygon map data.

Of all the map data in MapBake:

  • 78% is polygon data

  • 18% is point data (all for second level subdivisions)

  • 4% the data is missing (all for second level subdivisions; and will be added when found)


There are 80 top level codes that have points for some or all of their second level subdivisions.

This link identifies the places that have some point data for the second level subdivisions
Cassie De Pecol traveled to 196 countries.

MapBake countries visited

MapBake ISO codes not visited

For more info check out the web site: https://expedition196.com/
Swiss sub-codes and map data have been added.

The Swiss map data is derived from:
Source: Swiss Federal Office of Topography

Also some better LI region maps are now also from the Swiss data.
Some data is from GeoNetwork open-source developers and therefore any data generated from that is Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Please see the GeoNetwork User Manual for additional info.
Backup has been enhanced so KML sets will be backed up.

MapBake codes will change soon. Maybe tomorrow August 18th, 2016.

So backup now.
Since sub-regions are now supported, the single quote character is being used in sub-region MapBake codes. This causes escaping the character and takes 3 bytes to send 1 character. I am going to recreate MapBake codes without that character. This will cause almost all MapBake code to change.

MapBake now has a Backup button that will copy a text representation (not MapBake codes) of the selected places. This text can be put in the code entry box and will create the new MapBake codes after they change.
Canada sub-codes have been added with map data adapted from Statistics Canada, gcd_000b11a_e.zip, 11/28/2011. This does not constitute an endorsement by Statistics Canada of this product.

Iceland sub-codes and new map data has been added Based on data from National Land
Survey of Iceland.
Please see http://www.lmi.is/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/licenceNLSI.pdf for more information.
A new version was released that allows for sub-regions to be identified.

Some countries have map data for these sub-regions, some do not. I also have possible sub-regions I can identify for about another 0 countries or so.

The Show function uses geochart which uses the regions for some countries and the sub-regions for others. MapBake will try to use both so whichever is used will work.
Since sub-codes have been added:

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

Morocco (MA) - 63 sub-codes
Greece (GR) - 51 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 468 of 5858 places

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.
