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.

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.

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

Hi

I have lived in Spain and I am aware that some regions don't like the official Spanish names and don't even consider themselves Spaniards. In the Basque Countries we have an import from the local authorities. I also had meetings with the IGN in Madrid about this topic.

Are you speaking about the city and municipality in Galicia?
http://www.geonames.org/3110610/sanxenxo.html
http://www.geonames.org/6360248/sanxenxo.html

As I understand it the name in Galician is Sanxenxo and in Spanish it is spelled Sanjenjo. It is already correct. What do you want to change here?

Regards

thanks. Will be fixed.

Marc
will be fixed.

Marc
it is just an abbreviation not the iso code.

Marc
thanks. Will be deleted.

Marc
It is not a tilde (~) but an acute accent and I don't think it is wrong to spell it without in English, since those characters do not exist in English.

Marc
fixed thanks.

Marc
done
