Hi Andreas

Thanks a lot for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. It is clear Phattaya is not a province, but it was not clear to me what it really is. Some sources say it has special rights similar to Bankok.
What do you suggest we do with it? How shall we model it?

The admin subdivisions for Thailand are unfortunatley very complex and there are very few good datasources. Your website is by far the best.
What is the license of your datasets? Are we allowed to use it and sync geonames with your data?

Best Regards

Marc
thanks.
hallo moses

In der geonames db gibt es knapp 80 000 populated places für Deutschland. Über alle feature classes sind es knapp 190 000 features.

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.

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?

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.

Best Regards
