Thanks 


done, thanks.

This is indeed a problem. Since we have now polygon boundary information for a lot of cities (namely US and some other countries) we can determine all PPL within the boundaries of a larger city and change them to PPLX.

As a test we have done so for the US state of Colorado some days ago. If this change does not show any further issues we will do the same for the other US states and later for other countries as well.

Best Regards

Marc
done. Thanks.

When I look into the file then I see this:

Hi

The alternate names table has two brand new columns 'from' and 'to'. They are used to specify the period from-to when the name was used.
I have marked Verdun-sur-Meuse as historic with the to field '1970' and Verdun with from '1970'.

The new columns are exported in the new file alternatenamesV2.

The user level concept helps to protect some features agains undesired updates. We can increase your userlevel.

The pseudo language code fr_1793 still exists.

Best Regards

Marc
Yes, they are wgs84 coordinates:

thanks. Will be fixed.

fixed, thanks.

Hi Phillipe

I have added your tree into 'code' marker. Like this it is displayed better.

I have also added the four departements as parent of the Loire Valley feature:
http://www.geonames.org/2997862/val-de-loire.html
The system does not allow to add two admin hierarchies in the admin tree. It needs to be modelled in the additional hierarchy.

With the communes we could add them as children and compute the boundaries for the Loire Valley.

Best Regards

Marc
that would be cool, we could then add them as children of the region and build the boundary from the commune boundaries.

Are all the communes completly with the region? Otherwise the list would not work as well.

Marc
Hi

The service now accepts two optional parameters:
country (iso country code)
and
postalcode

The parameter 'continent' is in the pipeline and will be supported soon.

The order does not matter, missing elements can just be left out. Add the info you have to the q parameter and the service will do its best.
When the street is missing it may return a different street with the same house number.

The service is described here:
http://www.geonames.org/maps/addresses.html#geoCodeAddress

You find also the list of supported countries on the page above.

Best Regards

Marc
Hi Phillippe

Thanks. I have removed the adm1 code for the Loire Valley.
Do you know whether the boundaries are available? Or can the area be defined with a list of ADM4 (communes)?

I have moved the posting in the thread 'Discussion of GeoNames Toponyms' as it is not an administrative division.

Best Regards

Marc
Hi

The children service accepts a parameter 'hierarchy'. With the value 'dependency' it will return the dependencies:

http://api.geonames.org/children?geonameId=2635167&username=demo&hierarchy=dependency

Marc
fixed, thanks.

Marc
Like this it works:
curl -X POST -i "http://api.geonames.org/srtm3?" --data "lats=50.01,51.01&lngs=10.2,11.2&username=demo"
deleted, thanks.

Marc
fixed, thanks.

Hi Oleksandr

I think it is here:

I don't know what steam is doing or where they have the data from.

GeoNames seems to have this correct.
Example:

http://www.geonames.org/2649692/fareham.html
http://www.geonames.org/2648272/gosport.html
