Hi Marc,

in admin1_codes.txt Palestine has one entry

PS.00 West Bank (general)

I think It should be like this:

PS.GZ Gaza
PS.WE West Bank

I think you can set the admin1_codes of all places with country='PS'
by longitude < 34.6E => GZ else WE

Hi Julian

You are right this is wrong and will be fixed with the next daily dump.

Hi Marc, thanks for fixing the admin1_codes. Any chance we can get the geonames assigned the right admin1_code?

Here is my SQL for it:

Code:
 update geonames set admin1_code='GZ' 
 where admin1_code='00' and country_code='PS' and longitude < 34.6;
 update geonames set admin1_code='WE'
 where admin1_code='00' and country_code='PS' and longitude >= 34.6;

Hi Julian

The admincode1 has already been assigned. Check out the latest dump.

Hi Marc, thanks yes, what confused me was that the modification dates had not changed.

This is true, for database hacks like this one, the history and daily modification files don't work.
