The webservice returns an ocean for some areas. Here is an example:
http://ws.geonames.org/extendedFindNearbylat=54.62746259208500&lng=8.39704155921940&username=demo

Anyways the place "Wittd├╝n" is close.

How can I myself with the database dump figure out if a place is close to the North Sea?
Searching from the center of the sea does not make sense for me. Searching in all-geonames leads to the following entry (as top result): 2807381
