Hi All - I'm trying to figure out how others have implemented scalerank/labelrank in regards to the GeoNames city data, as there is no preexisting field that provides this type of information.

The city data provided by Natural Earth includes a scalerank that can be joined via geonameid, but there are only ~7000 cities and that doesn't cover the entire GeoNames dataset, which therefore makes it insufficient.

I devised my own method that is based on population and proximity, and may soon incorporate political capital status, but I would really like to know what others have done before I continue.

Any and all input is much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Best wishes,

Brittany Gale
