change admin level of budapest?

Hi

following wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:HU Budapest has the same functional level as the 19 counties (AL6)

wikipedia wrote:

The capital of the country Budapest has special status equal to the counties

therefore from my point of view AL6 would be better for Budapest instead of AL8.

Any comments?

Thank you for checking Hungarian admin_level polygons smile

> therefore from my point of view AL6 would be better for Budapest instead of AL8.

As I now we have 2 "Budapest" admin - polygons
https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/sea … 1&viewbox=

* admin_level=6  https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/37244
* admin_level=8  https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1244004
* admin_level=5  ( need to create ? )  see NUTS changes  (2018-01-01)   - but we need to discuss this -  in our hungarian osm mail list.

my personal opinion: I don't support for removing - admin_level=8  https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1244004
because - for the data consumers - there will be a "hole" in the map.


> following wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:HU

be careful with Wikipedia info, 

in Hungary - some NUTS was modified on 1 January 2018   ( http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/nuts/background )

Hungarian official info: https://www.ksh.hu/regional_atlas_counties?lang=en
So ->  " Based on the changes, Budapest and Pest county are also planning and statistical regions, while Central Hungary became exclusively a statistical large region"  -->  admin_level=5
