I have a data (more than 50,000 observations) of cities in the EU.
My goal is to assign NUTS-2 code to each of these cities. However, I am not aware of any direct way of achieving this, so I wanted to first assign coordinates to the cities and then use the 'over' function (in R) to match with NUTS regions from EU shapefile.
Is it possible to use data from GeoNames to achieve this?
