Hello Ghislain,

Thank you for the links. These are all vocabularies that describe 
national administrative subdivisions. They are similar to the thing I am 
trying to make. But what I am missing is a general description of what 
NUTS and LAU are. If such a thing would exist, national descriptions 
like these could refer to that general vocabulary, which would allow a 
higher level of interoperability (e.g. compare regions with the same 
NUTS level from several data sets).

Since NUTS and LAU are defined by Eurostat, I would expect Eurostat to 
provide a vocabulary. Perhaps it exists, but I can not find it.
