Am I free to use Geonames data (the database dump, not the webservices)
in our own commercial webportal?
And if, what constraints in terms of licensing do we have.
Any licensing fees we have to pay or do we have to mention

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards Johannes
Hello Geonames staff,

let me give you a short interview of myself.
I am a software developer working at the ADempiere project, which is
currently the worlds largest open source ERP/CRM/SCM system.

My current contribution is some functionality to lookup a location name by
entering the postal code for a Business Partners address.
Since we can't require all users to have a internet connection during working with ADempiere we decided against a realtime webservice lookup, even if
it's the cleaner way doing it. Rather we let the user download the database dumps of the countries he's interested in, let him doing the import using my
additional functionality i develop for ADempiere and that's it.

But now we ran into serious trouble as we have recognized that the postal code itself is not part of the database dumps you provide for download.

Now my question:

Would you be so kind to send us the postal code only database dump for
all countries which are available? We weould be very thankful if you could do so and would like to mention Geonames in our feature list as well as
the changelogs.

My email address is: j.gubo {at}

You can catch me also on IRC at channel #adempiere

Thanks in advance!

Best regards Johannes
