  • Add any shorthand I may have missed. Codes may be ambiguous if the context is clear.. i.e. graticules on the border to Indiana won't confuse "IN" with India.
  • Needed: - a list of ISO/Zip codes for Canadian states

Do you mean postal codes for Canadian provinces and territories? (We don't have states). We have very detailed postal codes, but I could give you the letters they start with for each province. -Robyn

Yes, any commonly recognized (among Canadians) two- or three-letter code would do nicely. Unless you'd say that having the full name written out in the Canadian graticule templates isn't that bad after all. ;) -- relet 19:26, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
