Hong Kong Regionals

Hey fellow collectors,

All 18 regions of Hong Kong are possible,  However, at the moment, you will see that most of your hits will be Unknown. I have corrected most of the 10 million unknown ips.  After the next few Sunday updates, more regions will become easier!

Good Luck

Re: Hong Kong Regionals

Hi. How are you getting regional data for countries?

I initially thought you were going by the ISO 3166-2 standard but seeing as Hong Kong doesn't have regions based off that standard I'm assuming you're just grabbing regions from maxmind that uses geoname_id service?

I'm just interested!

I'll take a private message too if you don't want to discuss it here.

Edit: I can't find any codes here or on wikipedia

https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:code:3166:HK

But I do notice it here
http://www.geonames.org/HK/administrative-division-hong-kong.html

I'm wondering if geonames just made their own iso codes for simplicity of using their service.

Re: Hong Kong Regionals

No, the codes GeoNames use are official. Just because Wiki doesn't list them, doesn't mean they don't exist

Re: Hong Kong Regionals

I know wikipedia isn't the best place for current information but I did provide the link to the official ISO database which is also lacking HK ISO 3166-2 codes. This is specific to HK/XK themselves having ISO codes on geonames but not the official ISO database. Granted I don't know if ISO standard keeps their online database up to date. That being said this isn't an issue or anything, just something that I was curious about.

Re: Hong Kong Regionals

Yep. I did some research and it seems they have been discontinued. The Remark part 2 section was updated on Nov 23, 2017 and it seems they removed the codes

Re: Hong Kong Regionals

Yes, at the moment. They won't be when their codes stop working
