Subject:      Map data sets
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"; format=flowed


When looking at the world data set, there is an id (label=GLC: Country ID Number) column. What does GLC stand for? and is there a data set available that would have a mapping of this column to the name of the country? and just for the sake of hoping a birdie is listening, a map to the top level domain? I have looked at the country_name2 data sets and they have an id column as well but I'm not sure if the value of id=685 (for Norway) in the norway2 data set represents Norway in the world data set. There are 10,138 obs (all them fjords I guess) out of 456,001 in the world data set where id=685.


For example it would be nice to have (hypothetically and to reference some of the more common) ...

GLC Name Top Level Domain ------- -------- ------------------------- 60 Turks and Caicos Islands tc 83 Heard and McDonald Islands hm 94 Antarctica aq 103 Guinea-Bissau gw

and so on and so forth ...
