Dear all
This is my first post here.
I work in a company that is using GeoNames via a 3rd party tool.
We noticed that 1000 = Lausanne 16 is not in the directory.
It is listed in the offical Swiss Postal Code directory. There are other Postal Codes missing, all in the block 6000 Lucerne nn.

My question:
Is there a process to report missing or wrong codes? If yes, how does it work?

Thank you very much for your answer.
Kind regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas

Lausanne 16 has plz_typ 30 (in the swiss postal code directory) which means it is only used for po boxes. (and the code itself is 1000 as other codes in Lausanne)
Initially we only had residential postal codes as they have a lat/lng associated and thus a geographical meaning. In the mean time we have included po boxes for other countries and also have some processing flags to distinguish them in the db from residential codes.
So we can include them now.

Best Regards

Marc

Hi Marc
Thanks for answering my question.
Very good news. How is the process to add those Postal Codes? Do you need more details?
Kind regards
Thomas
