An administrative boundary. Subdivisions of areas/territories/jurisdictions recognised by governments or other organisations for administrative purposes.

Administrative boundaries range from large groups of nation states right down to small administrative districts and suburbs, with an indication of this size/level of importance, given by the combo tag 'admin_level' which takes a value from 1 to 10 as described below.

The boundary=administrative tag is used on ways Way. It may also (or instead) be used on a relation grouping several ways. This works rather like coastline. Because ways have a maximum number of nodes, you are not required to loop around a whole administration with a single way to form a closed area (although this is a good idea for very small administrative areas)

Adding admin_level to place=* nodes is under discussion [1], you may better only add them to boundary=administrative relations and ways for now.


Super-national administrations

  • European Union

Note: a trans-national administration is not a super-national organisation and should not be tagged admin_level=1.

National

boundary=administrative
+ admin_level=2 

marks country borders, such as the border between Austria and Germany. The names of the countries is specified through the tags left:country=*, right:country=*, if used on a linear way rather than an enclosed/area way.

There is some controversy about what is the exact meaning of country. For the sake of clarity, only political entities listed on the ISO 3166 standard are to be considered countries.

Country names in the table below are written in English.

Subnational

boundary=administrative 
+ admin_level=3 to 10

marks subnational borders. The names of the subnational entities involved is specified as with national borders, with "parish", "district", "region", "province", "state"

admin_level

admin_level=1 to 10 has been introduced in order that different borders can be rendered consistently among countries (doing this based on border_type would require knowledge of their hierarchy in each country).

10 admin_level values for specific countries

If your country is undocumented, please use the talk page or your local mailing list for discussion, and add it below.

If your country uses more than 10 administrative levels, see the next table.
