simplified country polyons are now available in the download directory. We are still figuring out best format, optimal size and what will be free and what will be premium.

all polygons in highest possible resolution will be available as premium option.

Marc
thanks. The two postal codes have been deleted from the database.

Marc
Check out the alternate names table.

Marc
The timezoneId should be sufficient for you to get the information from your local environment.
For java for example you get it from the TimeZone class with the getOffset method:

has been correctd, thanks.

The alternate name Czechia has been flagged as 'colloquial'. This will hopefully solve the problems reported.

Marc
Thanks.

They have been created:

Hi Eric

You find the list of oceans used by the service here:

Hi Peter

The code '00' stands for general features not belonging to any adm1. You can set them to 'null' in your application.

Hi Breach

I have marked them as 'colloquial' names, and I have also marked 'Ávila' as preferred name.
I think it is a bit early to increase your user level since you have not yet made many updates. It is probably better to get more experience with the data and modelling concept.

Best Regards

Hi

use the parameter 'level' to drill deeper into the hierarchy.

the default radius is 10km, max limit for free service 20km, max limit for premium 150km
Hi Robert

Thanks for your contribution. Please feel free to improve the coordinates, just be carefull not to use anything derived from GADM since the restrictive licence of GADM does not allow us to use their data.

I don't find 47037 on the poste.it website: http://www.poste.it/online/cercacap/home.do

however I do find 47921 and on the wikipedia page is says: 47921-47924

What do you think best? to add the four codes with place Rimini or add some other place names as well?
Wikipedia says
47922 Viserba, San Vito (it actually says 47822, but poste.it does not know this code)
47923 Vergiano
47924 Rivazzurra, Miramare

Hi

I am not sure what you mean. For a day São Paolo was spelled without tilde in the English translation and the main toponym name:
http://www.geonames.org/3448439/sao-paolo.html

If this poses a problem to you then I strongly suggest to use the premium data extraction instead of the free one. The main advantage of the premium extract is exactly that the data goes through a releases cycle and changes like this are undone before the release.

Regards

Marc
both entries look correct to me.
nga stands for 'national geospatial intelligence agency' and is the US army. It is a monthly update job with data from the nga. The German government has not yet releases any open geo data and we have to use US data instead. It will hopefully change soon, since Germany is the last larger European country which does not publish open official data, the German parliament has decided last year to change this, but so far nothing has happened.

Marc
deleted, thanks.

Marc
thanks. the postal code has been added.

Marc
Thanks, I have moved the railway station and I have also increased your user level.
Thanks for your contributions.

This will be fixed. The link above will work with the fix.
