Hello! I'm trying to figure out how the geonameid values are generated. Are they chronologically sequential? are they randomly generated? are they always between 4 and 8 digits? Thank you in advance!

Best wishes,

Brittany Gale

Hi Brittany

It is a database sequence starting with 1.

I'd like to reverse the question: Why would it be important?
