Mysql country codes database ISO 3166 and Maxmind

I’ve had to update my CMS to support ISO3166 country codes and also Maxmind geolocation country codes. Actually, there are 3 ISO standards, as we can see in Wikipedia for simplicity:

  1. Numeric 3 digit codes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_numeric
  2. Alpha 2 chars codes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2
  3. Alpha 3 chars codes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-3

I’ve synchronized country names from those 3 tables, and also from a fourth table coming from Maxmind product for geolocation:

  • GeoIP country: https://www.maxmind.com/app/iso3166

which comes with 3 added rows to catch some exceptions:

  1. Satallite provider
  2. Anonymous Proxy
  3. Other country

I’ve had to assign numeric codes from 10.000 to handle these 3 exceptions, and others coming from regions like Asia Pacific/Regiont and others that haven’t got a numeric code because they are not countries. I’ve done this because I prefer to have a numeric field as PRIMARY KEY. If you don’t, then you can select ‘alpha 2’ to be PRIMARY KEY, and then there is no need to invent fake numeric codes.

So, as current as of April 24, 2012, please find normalized country codes coming fron those 4 tables in the file below:

countries-mysql.txt

It’s is intended to be executed by a mysql client, like this:

cat countries-mysql.txt | mysql [mydatabase]

The content of the script is as follow.

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `countries`; CREATE TABLE `countries` ( `alpha1` char(2) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', `name` varchar(72) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', `alpha3` char(3) DEFAULT NULL, `numeric3` mediumint(8)
