Module:ISO 3166/doc

This is the documentation page for Module:ISO 3166

This module returns a country's or subdivision's code (alpha-2, alpha-3, numeric) or name (ISO, non-ISO) from ISO 3166 from a varity of inputs (alpha-2, alpha-3, numeric, name, ISO-name, alternative names). The module also removes junk from the input.

Examples

Countries (ISO 3166-1)

All three types of ISO 3166-1 codes (alpha-2, alpha-3 and numeric) work as inputs to name, as well as to code (which can therefore also be used to convert between different code types). Use |codetype= to output alpha-3 or numeric codes in code instead of the default alpha-2 codes.

Name

To get the common name use the name function

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GB}} → United Kingdom
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GBR}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|826}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

ISO Name

To get the common name use the name function with isoname = yes

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GB|isoname=yes}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GBR|isoname=yes}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|826|isoname=yes}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

Alpha-2

To get the alpha 2 code use the code function

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|826}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|United Kingdom}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|UK}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

Alpha-3

To get the alpha 3 code use the code function with codetype = 3

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|United Kingdom|codetype=alpha3}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GB}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GBR}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|826}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|UK|codetype=alpha3}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

Numeric

To get the numeric code use the code function with codetype = numeric or use the numeric function

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|numeric|GB}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|GB|codetype=numeric}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

Subdivisions (ISO 3166-2)

Inputs to name must be valid ISO 3166-2 codes, i.e. the country's alpha-2 code for the first part, and up to three alphanumeric characters for the second part. They may be given normally (with a hyphen between the parts), or split between two unnamed parameters. For code, the first parameter is the country name (or any of its three codes, like above), and the second the subdivision name.

Code (alpha-2)

To get the alpha-2 code of a subdivision use the code function with parameter 1 being the country and parameter 2 being the subdivision

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|United Kingdom|England}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|GBR|England}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|code|GB|England}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

Name

To get the name of a subdivision use the name function with parameter 1 being the country and parameter 2 being the subdivsion or parameter 1 being the subdivsion code

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GB-ENG}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|GB|ENG}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".

|isoname= works for subnational entities as well; keep in mind that ISO 3166-2 uses (transliterations of) local names that may differ from English ones. Set |lang= to a language code to switch between different languages for entities that have multiple ISO names. The default language for multilingual entities can be set on the country's data page.

  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|BE|BRU}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|BE|BRU|isoname=yes}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|BE|BRU|lang=fr}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
  • {{#invoke:ISO 3166|name|BE|BRU|lang=nl}}Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".
