Hi Daniel

I have renamed the feature and added the wikipedia link. Thanks for reporting

Best Regards

Hi Stefano

The geonameid is unique and never changes.

You speak about 'administrative divisions'. They can indeed split, merge or become victim of a large reorganisation. An indication is the adminX code, which usually is the country specific code (in Italy the one coming from istat) for levels adm2 or below. The adm1 code mostly is the code used by the US government. Admin divisions are usually not deleted when they cease to exist. They change the feature code to 'historic'.

Example:
Casali del Manco is a new municipality in Italy. It has the geonames feature:
http://www.geonames.org/11670253/casali-del-manco.html
with admin3code 078156.

It is replacing 5 municipalties. Among them
http://www.geonames.org/6541746/casole-bruzio.html
with adm3code 078028. The featurecode has changed from ADM3 to ADM3H.

Just from the feature and the codes it is difficult to know exactly what happend. We use the polygon (also from istat) to determine for the spot features within the adm3 where they now belong to as the boundaries can also change during splits/mergers and reorgs. It is possible that not the entire municipality makes the same change.

Hi Daniel

I have added a new entry here:

The French name already is 'Savoie'. Where did you find Savoy as French name?

Marc
Googeling for 'el pais azteca' I find a lot of entries.
Example:
https://espanol.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110409103121AAoRImf

The best will be to mark it as 'colloquial', what I now did.

Hi Brittany

Hi

Thanks for reporting. This is a bug and will be fixed.
We have improved some things for the GB postal codes. In the adm2 column there is now the ceremonial county and the place name has also been improved. In the bug the name of South Hampsire as metropolitan region was used instead of the city names.

Hi

Yes, the two passwords are different.

Hi

ava stands for Avar, a lanuage spoken in Dagestan:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avar_language

However, I think you are right and av can be used as well. I will change it.

Best Regards

Marc
fixed, thanks for reporting.

Marc
done. Thanks for reporting.

Marc
What are you referring to? A new reorg? Or the one from 2016? What changes do you expect?

Marc
Hi

There are no restrictions on the postal code data set for countries.

Hi Rachel

Thanks for your contributions. I have increased your userlevel.

Hi kphair

Thanks for your contributions. I have increased your user level.
I have also updated the feature you mention.

Best Regards

Marc
An additional column would be redundant. If you miss information in the alternate name table then please feel free to add it - you are part of the community -

If it really is too cumbersum to join the tables to get the info from the alternatenames table then we could add a convenience file with the name taken from the alternatenames table (like the admin1Codes file).

Best Regards

Marc
Hi Rachel

Is it repeatable or does it happen now and then? Do you have to login again after it had happened?

Bye the way: I have just found the boundary polygons for the provinces and counties and will be able to run an automated update to assign the adm1/2 codes for IE.

Best Regards

Marc

Hallo Martin

Vielen Dank.
Ich habe alle gelöscht, inklusive des Postfachs.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen

Marc
Hallo Martin

Genau das habe ich getan. Es hat aber noch einige Fehler drin.
Zb hier:
http://qa.geonames.org/qa/2017-07-16/chkPostalCodeValidAdminCode4_DE.html

Drei von deinen vier Fehlern sind dort drauf. Für den vierten werde ich noch eine Prüfung einbauen und dann erwischen wir diese Fehlerkategorie auch noch.

Gruss

Marc
