Hi,

I'm looking at 2660269 Illnau. According to https://www.geonames.org/2658434/switzerland.html#, the hierarchy is:

country Switzerland
adm1 Zurich
adm2 Bezirk Pfäffikon
adm3 Illnau-Effretikon
adm4 no admin4
adm5 no admin5

which is correct. However, when I check the hierarchy file https://download.geonames.org/export/dump/hierarchy.zip and search for 2660269 (Illnau), there are only two entries where Illnau is a parent, not a child.

So where is Illnau's hierarchy information stored?

Meanwhile I understood the instruction "The relation toponym-adm hierarchy is not included in the file, it can instead be built from the admincodes of the toponym.".

I haven't. Can somebody please explain how to get adm3-5?
