Hi,

The city of 'Den Haag' in the Netherlands (id=2747373) is the capital of administrative division 'Provincie Zuid-Holland' (id=2743698 ) so the fcode of 'Den Haag' should be 'PPLA' instead of 'PPL'.

Regards,
Dik

You are right Den Haag is more than just a plain PPL. As it is also the seat of the Dutch government I have changed the feature code to PPLG.

Best

Hi Marc,

Ok, you are right. Den Haag is also PPLG of the Netherlands. This is better than just PPLA of Zuid-Holland. Unfortunately, you can't see now that Den Haag is capital of Zuid-Holland. There isn't a way to assign both PPLG and PPLA ?

The additional feature code could be added as a tag.

It seems there are currently two entries for Den Haag in the database http://www.geonames.org/2747373 (as PPLG) and http://www.geonames.org/7280502 (as PPLA). Should one of these be removed?
