Luxembourg administrative regions

Recommended Posts

Luxembourg was divided into three districts until October 2015: Diekirch, Grevenmacher & Luxembourg.

 

It is now divided into 12 cantons. See this Wikipedia article for more details.

 

However, all the caches still have "state" shown as one of the above 3 defunct districts.

Where do you see "states" for caches in Luxembourg?  There is no state level selection when hiding a cache and selecting Luxembourg as the country, and when I looked at some caches in Luxembourg then I didn't see any state names.

It's GSAK that's dividing Luxembourg into three "states". GS doesn't know anything about "states" in LUX.

I just check my profile on project-gc and is shows that I've found caches in 1 Luxembourg Canton (Diekirch) and the maps page on the profile shows 12 Cantons.   While there are a lot of countries which have second level administrations (States, Provinces, Regions, Cantons) GS hasn't coded them for most countries.  

 

A couple of years ago I created a dataset which has a list of all the countries from the UN Geopolitical ontology and the second level administration for each.   I used data from geonames for the second level administrations and just checked and it also only has the 3 Luxembourg districts. I suspect that GSAK is using geonames for place names as well.

Thanks for the replies. Will chase the GSAK people to correct.

PS. Sorry for late reply - never got a notification of the above replies in spite of ticking the box!
