Mapping ISO Country Codes Alpha-2 to Alpha3

| Comments

A recent experiment with IMF, CIA, and World Bank datasets had me fighting to map ISO 3166 Alpha-3 codes to ISO 3166 Alpha-2 codes. The reason I had to perform the mappings, is because most downloaded flag icon libs on the web are based on Alpha-2 codes.

I have managed to map 183 countries in my local database, and am making the clean CSV available for download here.

The format is:

ISO ALPHA-2 Code , ISO ALPHA-3 Code
AF,AFG
AX,ALA
AL,ALB
DZ,DZA
