What exactly is the problem?

Marc
Hi David

The extendedFindNearby is a mix of several services which also exist as JSON variant.

For the US it returns the findNearestAddress
http://www.geonames.org/maps/us-reverse-geocoder.html#findNearestAddress

Code:
         public boolean isCities1000() {
                 if ("P".equals(featureClass)) {
                         return population > 1000
                                         || (featureCode != null && featureCode.startsWith("PPLA"))
                                         || "PPLC".equals(featureCode) || "PPLG".equals(featureCode);
                 }
                 return false;
         }
 
cities have feature class P for 'populate place'.

Hi David

If available a polygon is displayed, otherwise for PPL a bounding box is calculated based on population. If no population is available a default size is used.
Currentyl it cannot be edited with the browser interface, setting the population correctly will normally improve the size.

Thanks for pointing this out. We will take care of it.

Marc
yes, you are right. This is the old version.
You can browse the wikipedia layer with the new layout selecing 'wikipedia' and deselecting the geonames layer.
I have put it on the todo list to update the wikipedia.html page to use the new layout.

Marc
please feel free to add it.

Hallo Matthias,

Ja der plz export ist eine eigene Tabelle.

Der Gemeindeschlüssel ist in admincode4, this kam aber erst später dazu und ist in den export files noch nicht enthalten. Problem ist, dass eine Änderung des export formats alle Benutzer zum anpassen ihrer import scripts zwingt. Es wird deshalb erst mit der nächsten Formatänderung im export enthalten sein.

Die beiden Orte habe ich verschoben und die Koordinaten in der PLZ Tabelle aktualisiert.

Der Hauptname ist eher ein Internaltionaler/Englischer Name.
Hier hat es nur ein ü aber in anderen Scripts (Japan etc) würden viele dann gar nichts mehr erkennen können. Die anderen (auch lokalen) Sprachen sind in der Alternatenames Tabelle zu finden.

Gruss

Hi Bastien

Polygons are not directly editable, you can send me the data in a file. The same for the from, till dates, they are stored for adm but not yet on the user interface.
The Arrondissement of Paris are also ADM5:
http://www.geonames.org/search.html?q=adm5%2C+fr%2C+paris&BBOX=
You are right, the ADM5H is missing. I have added it just now.

For places of the past you should use a corresponding feature code. The PPLX is used for current locations. If they are 'administrative subareas' then they should be of feature type A not P.

The administrative hierarchy of the past can only be modelled via the hierarchy (tabs 'children' and 'parents').

I have increased your user level. Please only add historic features with the 'historic' feature code.

The primary focus of GeoNames is to model the current situation. The historic aspect of features is something that will be improved step by step.

The historic admd of France are missing because they not yet been in focus.

Marc
It is here: http://www.geonames.org/1283271/kala-pattar.html
one is an ADM3 the other a city.

GeoNames does have a feature for Lake District:
http://www.geonames.org/2645022/lake-district.html

but no other information, like boundaries etc. It is therefore impossibe to know which places are within this region.

Regards

Marc
Thanks. I have fixed those.

Hi Glen

usps says that Cookeville is the preferred city for 38501, for 38506 it does not even mention Algood.
