Webtrends’ Geography Drilldown report displays a country’s regions and smaller areas such as provinces or prefectures using one or more numbers or letters which do not appear to have any relevance to the locales they contain. As an example, the Geography Drilldown displays “Western Europe” at the root level and “France” at the next-lowest level, and at the level below that single letters such as “U” or “V” are used. The level below the letters displays recognizable place names such as “Marseille” or “Lyon” for “U” and “V,” respectively.


Most countries have been assigned ISO-3166-2 codes specifying regional divisions and subdivisions, and these codes are reflected in the Geography Drilldown to emphasize administrative divisions where use of the area’s full name may introduce ambiguity.
