thanks. Will be fixed.

will be fixed.

Marc
it is just an abbreviation not the iso code.

Marc
thanks. Will be deleted.

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

Hi Chris

What does your posting have to do with Hungary?
The UK do have possessions on the Island of Cyprus. Whether this is a mistake this you will have to discuss with other people. GeoNames only models the political facts, not whether they make sense.

Hm, I do see them:

it takes a couple of days to update all servers.

Marc
You are right this is an error in a data source. It will be fixed.

Marc
Thanks. Fixed

I don't know whether the code is wrong or the polygon is attached to the wrong code. It is like this in the 2001 files.

There is a new check here:
http://qa.geonames.org/qa/chkShpFeatureWithinNotADMx.html

I will split it per country so that the lines for a country turn up as a separate page on the country check page.

So far only the already existing polyongs have been added. I am still working on the inserts.

It is a fantastic data source, probably the best national data set I am aware of.

The domain ws.geonames.org was deprecated three years ago:

Hi nyakove

For massive updates the best and easiest would be to find the corresponding data from the official authorities. It would be great if you could help us locate this information. Administratrive divisions are often found on the websites of the national statistical office (even boundary information is often found there). Populated places and other features are normally managed by a national mapping agency.

I have received some complaints about your updates. Are you sure your updates to Admin division are correct? You have changed a couple of populated places to admin division. Does it mean those populated places do not exist? Villages and cities are in first place 'populated places', if there is also an admin division then it is a separate feature.

Regards

Marc
of course not. The adm2 are not in the adm1 file but in the adm2 file or in the allcountries file.

I have marked Irlanda as 'short'. The isPreferred label here may be misleading as both are equivalent, depending on the use case. I thing 'isShort' for the shorter term is more appropriate.

Regards

Marc
I have marked '"The City of Angels" as 'colloquial. The browser was returning the main toponym name, whereas the api returns the English name. Both names had the language code 'en' but there was no flag to mark one as more important then the other.

Marc
The Belgium Provinces are modelled as ADM2.
