[solved] Problem with Trøndelag


in OSM there is the county (fylke) Trøndelag(4) #406567 with ISO3166-2=NO-50. But there is a discrepance between https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:NO and https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:NO

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:NO → Trøndelag with NO-50

https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:NO → Sør-Trøndelag with NO-16 and Nord-Trøndelag with NO-17

http://www.statoids.com/uno.html → there are Sør-Trøndelag and Nord-Trøndelag

https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:code:3166:NO → there are Sør-Trøndelag and Nord-Trøndelag

Conclusion by me: OSM is wrong. Trøndelag(4) has to be split in north/south. But i can’t do that, because of missing knowledge. I need local help. After that i will change the wrong Wikipedia-Pages in all languages.

btw: i i’m wrong, please give me details.

Hi Walter!

OSM is correct.
Nord-Trøndelag (NO-17) and Sør-Trøndelag (NO-16) was merged into one county, Trøndelag (NO-50), at 2018-01-01.
All the municipalities now have a ref-id 50** (previously 16** and 17**).
User NKA merged counties in changeset 55068104, which is correct :slight_smile:

They even created a song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtzrjIqlmcE :smiley:


strange that even ISO does not know about that: https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:code:3166:NO

but of course i’ll believe you :wink:


Maybe someone that know how could mark the wiki pages as out of date until ISO have updated their site.
