Find Admin-Divisions API

The Find-Admin-Divisions API allows you to retrieve 2nd-level administrative divisions (counties or districts) by a variety of criteria, including:

  • Division name prefix
  • Countries
  • Time zones
  • Minimum population
  • Or near a specific GPS location

 

Results can be sorted (in both ascending and descending order) by:

  • Name
  • Country Code
  • Elevation
  • Population

 

Results can also be displayed in multiple languages (where the WikiData translation is available). Note that when a language is selected, the namePrefix param is matched on the version of the data corresponding to that language. For the list of available languages, see the Get Languages API.

 

GeoDB currently describes over 17,000 administrative divisions throughout the world (based on GeoNames and WikiData) and is refreshed periodically.
