Hi Marc,

http://www.geonames.org/3373397/la-gabriela.html shows La Gabriela, CUBA closer to Africa than Cuba: N 23°04′00″ / W 31°40′00″
http://geonames.nga.mil/namesgaz/ has: 23° 04' 29" N / 081° 40' 06" W, so I suspect that the main problem is a typo in the longitude.

Similarly, http://www.geonames.org/3373400/eliseo.html shows Eliseo, CUBA closer to Africa than Cuba : N 20°06′00″ / W 25°53′00″
http://geonames.nga.mil/namesgaz/ has: 20° 06' 18" N / 075° 53' 36" W, so I suspect that the main problem is a typo in the longitude.

Thanks!

I have fixed them myself.
Since this is the first time I have done that, I would appreciate if someone would check my work.
Thanks!

Hi all,

I noticed GeoNames doesn't have an entry for India's National Capital Region, an officially defined region that includes the National Capital Territory (which is in the database) and a few surrounding districts in other states. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Capital_Region_(India)

I just added it: http://www.geonames.org/9972750/national-capital-region.html

However, I've ended up tagging it as P/PPLS instead of the more appropriate A/ADM1 and can't edit as I'm a new user at userlevel1. Can someone help?

FWIW, there's already the NCT with A/ADM1. NCR is a super-set of NCT+neighbouring districts, but is not an official state.

I also don't see a way to contribute a map outline to mark its boundaries. Is that an advanced user feature?

Thanks.

Hi Marc,

It's working now. Thanks a lot!

Now, is there any way to change the name of an adm1?

If it is still useful I can start translating http://www.geonames.org/export/codes.html into German.

What do you prefer?

I can offer `gettext` .PO (preferred) or maybe XLIFF, Java .properties, PHP arrays.

Hi, Marc, I have the same problem as si_taylor. I wanted to move regions in Québec, and I couldn't. Can you help me, please?

I'd like to add a missing place.

It's under http://www.geonames.org/4087481/saint-clair-county.html and called Millstadt (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millstadt,_Illinois).

Not sure how I can add this. I tried to add it in the children view of the county but the only available field is a geoname_id.

Sorry if this has been asked before or this isn't the right thread to post.

BTW, upon going through the downloaded data (allCountries.txt) I find a lot of wrong information. Eg. a lot of towns that are marked as ADM2 but aren't ADM2 level (that is in Cologne, Germany).

Hi,

my name is Yuri Sintyaev, we are going to use geoname data on our website. I've found a few mistakes in geoname data. I've fixed them in our DB, but if it is possible I'd prefer to fix them in global geoname DB. I'm not allowed to fix it in http://www.geonames.org/maps/google_58.01_56.25.html. What can I do.

Thanks
Yuri
