Hi,

There are several issues with norwegian data:
- since 01/01/2018 counties "Nor-Trøndelag" and "Sør-Trøndelag" have been merged into a single county "Trøndelag"
- when getting data via postalCodeSearchJSON, data returned in field adminName1 are sometimes wrong, among others there is a problem with accented chars:
"Ostfold" instead of "Østfold"
"More og Romdal" instead of "Møre og Romsdal" (missing 's' as well)
"Trondelag" instead of "Trøndelag"

Strangely enough municipalities and postal areas are properly returned with accented chars (æøå)

Furthermore, some municipalities have been merged recently.

Thank you
Regards,
Leto

Hi,
Apparently, nothing has been done:
"Østfold" is still "Ostfold"
"Møre og Romsdal" is still "More og Romdal"...

ex.:http://api.geonames.org/postalCodeSearchJSON?username=plania&country=no&postalcode_startsWith=16&maxRows=1
returns
Code:
 {
 "postalCodes": [
 {
 "adminCode2": "0106",
 "adminCode1": "01",
 "adminName2": "Fredrikstad",
 "lng": 10.9298,
 "countryCode": "NO",
 "postalCode": "1601",
 "adminName1": "Ostfold",
 "ISO3166-2": "01",
 "placeName": "Fredrikstad",
 "lat": 59.2181
 }
 ]
 }
 


Regards,
Leto
