Columns

Criteria ID
Unique and persistent assigned ID. In the API, these criteria are of type Location.
Name
Best available English name of the geo target.
Canonical Name
The constructed fully qualified English name consisting of the target's own name, and that of its parent and country. This field is meant only for disambiguating similar target names--it's not supported in LocationCriterionService (use location names or criteria IDs instead).
Parent ID
The criteria ID of a parent. This field is included for legacy support, and the IDs may not be consistent across datasets. Canonical names is the preferred method of constructing hierarchies.
Country Code
The ISO-3166-1 alpha-2 country code that is associated with the target.
