Country subdivisions ISO 3166-2 codes as MS Access

ISO 3166-2 is part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and defines codes for identifying the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

The purpose of ISO 3166-2 is to establish an international standard of short and unique alphanumeric codes to represent the relevant administrative divisions and dependent territories of all countries in a more convenient and less ambiguous form than their full names.

This standard is recommended by the Darwin Core standard to include the information in the CountryCode field and it is used in applications such as Elysia and Darwin Test, developed by GBIF.ES.

Darwin Test

Darwin Test is a MS Access based program, designed to validate and test the Darwin Core records (Darwin Core versión 1.2, Darwin Core 1.4 and Darwin Core Archive), a standard used by GBIF to facilitate the sharing of information about biological diversity (occurrences, conserved specimens in natural history collections, samples and all related information).

Before publishing your biodiversity data in a public network such as GBIF it is highly recommended to test your data using Darwin Test in order to detect possible problems.
