should be

as "Département de l' Essonne" is in FR.A8 Île-de-France

in admin1Codes:
Code:
FR.A2	Brittany

should be
Code:
FR.A2	Bretagne

Hi Xav

I have fixed the admin1 code for Essonne. Bye the way, you can also fix errors like this one. Go to the info window on top of googlemaps for this toponym, click on 'edit', click on the admin level you want to edit, choose the right admin division, click 'save'.

'Brittany' is the English name for 'Bretagne'. In the adminCodes file we include the English name. If you want the french name you have to use the file alternateNames.txt and get the name with the language code 'fr'.

Cheers

Marc

Alternate Name id : 519088 is Départment de la Réunion

should be : Département de la Réunion

Couldn't figure out how to change alternate names on the google widgets

I have added the missing 'e'.

To edit alternate names you have to open the info window of the main name and click on 'alternate names' : http://www.geonames.org/manual.html#alternateNames
