The World Bank's Open Data initiative is "intended to provide all users with access to World Bank data. The data catalog is a listing of available World Bank data sources. This listing will continue to be updated as additional data resources are added. These resources include databases, pre-formatted tables and reports. Each of the listings includes a description of the data source and a direct link to that source. Where possible, the databases are linked directly to a selection screen to allow users to select the countries, indicators, and years they would like to search. Those search results can be exported in different formats. Users can also choose to download the entire database directly from the catalog."

The full text journal database JSTOR

Coding systems used to identify geographic areas. The primary source for this information is FIPS 10-4 (Countries, dependencies, areas of special sovereignty, and their principal administrative divisions). For water bodies and non-sovereign geographic areas, IMA maintains the "Water body reference data set," a two character alpha-numeric code list. Additionally, when the geographic area is a populated place, NIMA codes the country from FIPS 10-4 and also records the place name, as approved by BGN.
