This is a application for Django projects providing list of world countries based on ISO3166.

Project description

Django ISO3166

ISO 3166 is a three-part standard published by the Organization for Standardization (ISO), and defines codes for the names of countries, dependent territories, and special areas of geographical interest, and their principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states). The official name is Codes for the representation of names of countries and their subdivisions.

This project only uses one part of the standard, ISO 3166-1, It defines three sets of country codes:

  • alpha-2 : two-letter country codes which are the most widely used of the three.

  • alpha-3 : three-letter country codes.

  • numeric : three-digit country codes which are identical to those developed and maintained by the United Nations Statistics Division, with the advantage of script (writing system) independence, and hence useful for people or systems using non-Latin scripts.
