Ubigeo is the coding system for geographical locations (Spanish: Código Ubicacíon Geográfica) in Peru used by the National Statistics and Computing Institute (Spanish: Instituto Nacional de Estadística e Informática INEI) to code the first-level administrative subdivision: regions (Spanish: regiones, singular: región), the second-level administrative subdivision: provinces (Spanish: provincias, singular: provincia) and the third-level administrative subdivision: districts (Spanish: distritos, singular: distrito).

Peru, officially the Republic of Peru, is a country in western South America. It is bordered in the north by Ecuador and Colombia, in the east by Brazil, in the southeast by Bolivia, in the south by Chile, and in the west by the Pacific Ocean. Peru is a megadiverse country with habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region in the west to the peaks of the Andes mountains vertically extending from the north to the southeast of the country to the tropical Amazon Basin rainforest in the east with the Amazon river.
The administrative divisions of Peru have changed from time to time, since the nation gained independence from Spain in the early 19th century. The old territorial subdivisions have split or merged due to several reasons, the most common ones being the need for decentralization, and population increase, especially in Lima.
The coding system uses two-digit numbers for each level of subdivision. The first level starts numbering at
01 for the Amazonas Region and continues in alphabetical order up to
25 for the Ucayali Region. Additional regions will be added to the end of the list, starting with the first available number.
The second level starts with
0101 for the first province in the Amazonas region: Chachapoyas Province and continues up to
2504 for the last province Purús in the Ucayali Region. The provinces are numbered per region with the first province always being the one in which the regions capital is located. The remaining provinces are coded in alphabetical order. Additional provinces will be added per region to the end of the list, starting with the first available province number.
Chachapoyas is a province of the Amazonas Region, Peru. The province of Chachapoyas was a part of the department of Trujillo being its capital the city of Chachapoyas.
Purús Province is one of four provinces in the Ucayali Region, in the central Amazon rainforest of Peru. The Purus River runs through it.

010101 for the first district in the first province in the Amazonas region: Chachapoyas District and continues up to
250401 for the last district in the last province of the Ucayali region: Purús District. The districts are numbered per province with the first district always being the one in which the province’ capital is located. The remaining districts are coded in alphabetical order.
