Hello,
I am trying to set up a table with cities. I have tried downloading the cities500, cities1000, cities5000 lists, but strangely enough they are missing rather big and popular cities/towns that ARE present on GeoNames website.

A couple of examples for these :

Ronda, Spain - https://www.geonames.org/2511730/ronda.html
Ribe, Denmark - https://www.geonames.org/2614813/ribe.html

Is there something I'm missing here? How come even though GeoNames does seem to contain those cities, the lists on the download server don't have them?

Thanks!

you must be confusing something. Most likely you have accidentally loaded only part of the files.
The cities files are only an extract and not the full list. The full list is found in the allcountries file. However the cities you are missing are big enough to be included in the files.

Best Regards

Marc

I'm sorry, indeed I was using a bad tool for viewing the csv file.
a bit off-topic, but could you please say whether there's a data that has landmark/attractions? (at least for X most popular cities or anything of that sort).
There are spots features, but there isn't an "attraction" type to sort them, am I correct?

Thanks!
