The postal code search for Austria lists "Voralberg" as Admin 1 value, but it's "Vorarlberg" with "r".

Hallo,
There are some error in Admin1name definition for Austria (language : de):
Different names in Admin1name by postalcode search and normal geonames serach.

for 1010 (Vienna) -"adminName1":"Wien"
and for http://ws.geonames.org/searchJSON?style=full&fcode=adm1&q=AT&lang=de&callback=getLocation
- "adminName1":"Bundesland Wien"

(It seems, you need only to delete the word "Bundesland" everywhere).

The same problem we have got with Germany's adminName1 -the word "Land" make results different.

Could you correct it too?

Thanks very much in advance,
Yana Weber

Hi Yana

I have fixed it for Austria and German. The same problem exists for most administrative divisions and we are working on it.

Cheers

Hi Marc,
"Vielen Dank für deine Hilfe "
Thank you very much for your help!
We have tested for Austria and it works!
But there are still the same problem with Germany.
Could you also delete the word "Land" from the Germany's adminName1.
Thank you very much in advance,
Yana Weber

Hi Yana

You can help us fix it. Go to the GeoNames web page for the 'Land'. Like here for Hessen :
http://www.geonames.org/2905330/land-hessen.html
Click on the "alternate names" link and add a new alternate name with the short name 'Hessen', add the language code 'de' and mark it as 'shortName'. Fixed. (It may take a moment to be visible on the web service, since they are different servers and it may take a minute or two for the synchronization to take place.)

Cheers

Marc
