deleted, thanks.

Hi Oleksandr

I think it is here:

I don't know what steam is doing or where they have the data from.

GeoNames seems to have this correct.
Example:

http://www.geonames.org/2638911/ryde.html
http://www.geonames.org/2649692/fareham.html
http://www.geonames.org/2648272/gosport.html

The geonames api also returns Europe/Kiev:

Code:
 {
   "sunrise": "2018-02-23 06:55",
   "lng": 30.5238,
   "countryCode": "UA",
   "gmtOffset": 2,
   "rawOffset": 2,
   "sunset": "2018-02-23 17:28",
   "timezoneId": "Europe/Kiev",
   "dstOffset": 3,
   "countryName": "Ukraine",
   "time": "2018-02-23 13:55",
   "lat": 50.45466
 }
 


There was a temporary bug on some of the free servers returning Russia.
The main name is normally an international/English name.
For Munich the English name is well known, the local German name is found in the alternatenames table.

Danke ich habe Wittenberg von PPL auf PPLA3 geändert und zugleich die Einwohnerzahl auf 30000 gesetzt.
Die Zahl von knapp 50000 bezieht sich auf die ganze Gemeinde, in der 'City' hat es weniger Einwohner.

Marc
It no longer exists as it has been similar to the admin1CodesASCII.txt file.

Marc
the duplicate May hotel entry has been deleted.

Marc
The format is as intented.
APO stands for Army Post Office. The 'state designator' is not a state code as we know it therefore it does not stand in the admincode1 field.

Best Regards

Marc
Thanks for pointing this out.
I have resurrected the former entry for Chobe:
http://www.geonames.org/933840/chobe-district.html

Wikipedia lists 17 districts, where we have now 16. The town 'Orapa' is listed as district:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Districts_of_Botswana
Do you know whether this is correct?
I don't see it here:
http://www.gov.bw/en/Ministries--Authorities/

Hi Lukas

This is a bug. The fix is in deployment will take a day or two to be deployed on all servers.
Thanks for reporting.

Best Regards

Marc
ZCTA is far from reliable, this was actually our first source 12 years ago. I hope we have improved since.

Hi Paul

The timezone webservice primarly returns the timezoneId for a given lat/lng.
If you have the timezoneId then you can do the adjustment locally, as long as you have the newest timezone rules installed.

If you do not have the timezone rules installed or cannot make sure that they are updtoday then it might sense to use a third party service. The current dst adjusted time is in the time field, the offset fields refer to 1. of Jan and 1. of July. They don't contain the information at which point in time (month, day, hour) the change occurs.

Best Regards

Marc
deleted. Thanks.

Hi Linnie

There are some polygons for countries in the download.
The other polygons (mainly admin divisions) are part of the premium polygon subscription:

fixed. In the download already available. Will take some days to be visible on the servers.
