The following limitations are known in the current code set, and are expected to be addressed in the future:

  • No political subdivisions below ROG level 2 (first level administrative subdivisions) are included.
  • No alternate name and code information is provided for level 2 entities.
  • Each country has a listing of the form XX00 defined at Level 2, with a name of " (general)". These are included in the NIMA code tables, but seem redundant. Our intention, unless we find some support for the retention of these codes, is to retire them in all cases except those where a level 1 entity has no discernable first-level subdivisions.
