we are updating the aster dataset from version 1 to version 2. Some servers still have v1 data. Depending on which server you you end on you will get v1 or v2 data.

Hi

'07' is the fips code for Victoria:

You are right, CX should be under Oceania instead of Asia. Will be fixed.

Why do you want to create a third feature beside the admin feature and the island?

Hi

An ssl endpoint is available at https://secure.geonames.org/

The name in the geoname table is an internationally understood name, often in English sometimes in latin spelling.
There is no dedicted 'native name' columns as you are the first to ask for it. The data is available in the alternatenames file, where available the native name can be derived from the alternatename table with the local language defined in the countryinfo file.
A dedicated column would be problematic for areas where several languages are spoken natively. What would be the local name for these features? In order to model it proberly we would need a 1:n relation which brings us back to the alternate name table.

Hallo Christian

The new featurecode ARCHV is here.
The first feature with it is:
http://www.geonames.org/6930363/the-national-archives.html

Gruss

Marc
Has been added today.

Hi Christian

How many features would you contribute? We have the bad experience that in the past we had introduced feature codes which we had to remove some years later because of only one feature with this code.

Hi

I am familiar with the concept of a Tram, we have it too in Zürich, Switzerland. In order to introduce a new feature code we should have data to populate the database.
I have found the lat/lng for Zürich:
http://geolion.zh.ch/geodatenservice/show?nbid=1056
A dataset for the whole of Switzerland also seems to include tram stations:
https://opentransportdata.swiss/de/dataset/bhlist/resource/b92a372f-7843-4ddd-b1c6-c9c6397e1097

Do you know similar datasets for the Netherlands? A feature for tram stations is only useful if we have full coverage for entire cities or even entire countries, as many as possible

Best Regards

Marc
This is per design. Why should you want to page further then 5000 records?

Best Regards

Marc
Looks as if something is wrong with your queries or you load process. Africa is certainly in the hierarchy file (as parent of the sub regions).

Marc
thanks, you are right. I have removed the population number.

The update for Italian ADM3 is done. It is now up to date with July 2016.

Ventasso for instance is here:

PS: Postal code update ongoing.
Thanks. I have checked with www.poste.it and there are a couple of changes this year:

http://www.poste.it/risorse/postali/pdf/cap-aggiornamento-2016.pdf

I will take care of it.

Marc
a couple of other changes have also taken place:
http://www.istat.it/it/archivio/6789

Update in geonames is ongoing.
you can download the flat files, load them into mysql and connect as you describe.
Possibly you can also connect to flat files, please consult the hive docs.

Hi Pavel

This is true, in the countryInfo.txt it is only visisble as it is at the end of the file. Adding the feature code would probably be a good idea, when we add it as a new column at the end of the line it hopefully does not create too many problems.

Best Regards

Marc
the max distance is limited to 200m per default. You can increase it with the parameter 'radius':

http://api.geonames.org/findNearestAddress?lat=33.44244&lng=-84.686048&username=demo&radius=0.3
The timezomeId is referring to the iana timezone project ('Olson Timezone'). The DST rules per timezoneId are maintained in the iana tz project, which is included in most programming envs (like java).
Best is to google for the timezone support in your environment, if it is not natively supported there are for sure 3rd party libs for this.
All you then need is the timezoneId of a location and the lib will tell you where it is DST for particular date.

Best Regards

Marc
