Baarle-Heide is the name of a part of the former moor between Turnhout 5Belgium) and Baarle-Nassau (Nederland) . It is not a village or even a part of a village. It is a name that is rarely used. I think it is better to remove the name out of the database and replace it by Turnhout-countryside .

I have changed the feature code from 'populated place' to 'moor(s)'.

Do you think this is a good solution? We can so still keep the name in case some one finds the name and wants to know what and where it is. Even if it is not widely used it still seems a feature we should not delete.

Cheers

Maybe you are right, the problem is that some programs use the database to name a location. The result is in this case confusing.
