On 2006-03-29, the ISO 3166-1 Maintenance Agency issued an update. The Isle of Man has a new country code assigned to it.
|Short name||ISLE OF MAN|
|Time zone||0 ~|
Although the Isle of Man is tributary to the British crown, it is not part of the United Kingdom. Its autonomy has been recognized since 1765. Its status since 1827 has been Crown dependency. The conventional abbreviation for Isle of Man is "I o M".
The Isle of Man is divided into six sheadings.
See the Parishes of the Isle of Man page.
For hundreds of years, the Isle of Man has been divided into six sheadings, which in turn were subdivided into seventeen parishes. Onchan seems to have changed its status from parish to village recently. At present, the local government units are sixteen parishes, four towns, and four villages. The two parishes with the greatest population are designated as districts.
A government report on electoral redistricting , regarding "the desirability of maintaining current community and other boundaries" in drawing election districts, says, "The Isle of Man has a number of such divisions--those of the traditional Sheadings, Parishes (ecclesiastical not always being the same as local government), towns, villages and rural areas. ... Sheading boundaries are the most difficult to respect--and we have noted that these ceased to be regarded as definitive in Tynwald [Parliament]'s limited adoption of the Butler Report's recommendations."
Isle of Man consists of the Isle of Man and the much smaller Calf of Man, both in the Irish Sea.
The UN LOCODE page for Isle of Man lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
