thanks.
usps is using the variant without dashes, but everybody else is using it with dashes. So I agree we better use the dash variant.
USPS may have a very old system which removes a lot of chars and is restricted to upper case.

Hi Rachel

I have updated Germany using the adm4 boundary polygons. Skipped those with different adm1 code.
There are still 330 populated place in Germany without adm3/4. Aileen will check them all and see wether they are located wrongly (and duplicates to the real one in the correct adm1).

I thought I had already done it, but somehow I didn't.
Thanks for the reminder.
Now I really did.

the api.geonames.org domain is only accepting http connections, for https you have to use secure.geonames.org.

Reason: not all api.geonames.org servers are yet configured and set up for https.

The data is exported every day. Why do you think it is from January?

Hi

It is not possible to see the remaining credits. This feature has not been implemented.

Thanks for reporting. I have changed it.

Hi Heleen

I think you are confusing things in particular the difference between administrative divisions and populated places.
Son and Breugel are not historic populated places, they still exist. At least I can see houses on the satellite images. 'historic' means the houses have been abandoned or destroyed.

They might be considered PPLX (section of populated place) if you want to express that they are part of a bigger entiy. In this case I don't have the impression this would be correct. On the satellite images they look rather distinct. I have changed them back to PPL.

I have added Son en Breugel as PPLA2 and moved the postalcodes from Son to it

Hi Dave

Shape files are good, they are a specific file format for geographic polygons. However, diva-gis is somehow reladed to gadm.org which has a restrictive license for academic use only and we are not allowed to use it.

The good news is I have found boundaries in Natural Earth which has a public domain license. The update will be in tomorrows export.

Hi Koshekans

Thanks for your contributions. I have increased your user level.

Hi Dave

Thanks for your lists. Unfortunally we have not yet found free/open polygon information for the Serbian admin divisions. Normally the national mapping agencies or statistical offices provide admin boundary polygons.

I have checked here:
http://www.geosrbija.rs/
http://www.stat.gov.rs/WebSite/Default.aspx

The former has a gis portal with boundaries, but I am not sure about the license and download options.
Let me know if you can find the boundaries. As it will allow to automatically assign the admin codes to the features when within the boundaries.

Best Regards

Kinmen has now the admincode2 KIN
http://www.geonames.org/1676511/kinmen.html
and Lienchiang the code LIE
http://www.geonames.org/6724655/lienchiang.html

all ADM2 for Taiwan have now the respective iso code as admincode2.
you are absolutely right, this is on the todo list and has now high priority.

Both links are important, the wikipeida links and the 'link' to wikidata.

Similar to the wikipedia link the wikidataid can now be added as alternatename with the pseudo language code 'wkdt'.

A batch parsing the wikidata dump and then adding the wikidataids is in the works.

Best Regards

Marc
thanks prak for pointing this out.
Do you know an official source with all the districts and their codes?

Hi Audric

The 1M plan is for 80€ only:
http://www.geonames.org/commercial-webservices.html
The premium plans also have limits, but we can lift them as it is only a small number of lookups in this case.

Best Regards

Marc
The yr.no link is for http://www.geonames.org/3060589/detva.html

The admincode1 '01' is for
http://www.geonames.org/3343954/banska-bystrica.html

Thanks for finding more errors.

The probs for AE and Oman are fixed. Switzerland is an artefact when simplifying the polyons.

Best Regards
