Hi Martin

On the website of the 'Deutsche Post' I see it is only used for PO boxes:
https://www.postdirekt.de/plzserver/index.html
I fear we don't have the po box only postal codes for Germany and adding a single one would be confusing and inconsistent.

Hi Aaron

The UK postal codes are not activly maintained, they are periodically importet from the Ordnance Survery.
Are you sure the code (still) BL5 3NU exists?

Best Regards

Marc
I have again marked Czechia as short name.

Marc
Updated, thanks.

Marc
Hm which feature are you speaking of?

http://www.geonames.org/6619448/trevi-fountain.html has always been set to Italy.

Hi Steve

probably an issue with your import procedures. I don't see another reason why you shouldn't find it in the other files.

Hi

Openstreetmap is using a closed licence (despite the term 'open' in the project name). GeoNames is therefore not allowed to include any data from openstreetmap.
GeoNames is using a more liberal and open license. Is is allowed to use data from geonames in openstreetmap, but not the other way round. If you want to add missing feature to geonames you can do so directly on the geonames website:
Unfortunately we are not allowed to sync with osm for the abovementioned license restriction.

Hi Dario

Hotel name, lat/lng and country are included in the allcountries file.

The address exists only for some hotels and cannot be exported because of copy-right reasons.

Marc
Hi Mike

It is difficult to find out what you are doing. Can you poste the exact queries? From your posting it is not even clear whether you are using geonames or some other service/data.

Marc
Danke, wurde korrigiert.

Hi Pawel

The toponym name (main name) is in English or a name which can be considered 'international'.

For the local name you have to find the language and get the name in this language. For the local language you can use the first language(s) in the countryInfo txt file. For countries like Switzerland with different language regions finer granularity might be required though. Cities on language borders sometimes have two or more local languages.

Hi Angoca

Thanks for the data you sent me by email. Since you are the other of the data and have the copy right we are allowed to import the data.

The data has been imported with your username:

Marc
thanks. fixed.
thanks. It should not have a country code. The cc2 code contains three countrycodes intead.
It will be fixed.

Hi

The postalCodeLookupJSON service returns max 20 rows per default.
You can change the behaviour and set the maxRows paramter to a higher value:

Marc
Thanks, the wrong pseudo language codes have been fixed.

Hi Jakob

The admin hierarchy is encoded in the adminX structure of the gazetteer file (allCountries.txt). You combine the countrycode and all available admin codes to find the entry in the dame table with the feature type ADMx and the same combination of codes.
Example you have countrycode XX and admincode1 01 then you search for a feature with feature code ADM1 and countrycode=XX and admincode1='01', this is the highest admin division, then you do the same for the ADM2 as a combination of countrycode, admincode1 and admincode2, etc till you have used all admX codes filled out for your feature. Normally you may want to fill a table with the entire hierarchy info encoded in the admX codes.

Regards

Marc
