Hello everybody,

I am exploring your awesome (!) database. For France :

1/ Places are up to date, no pb, great !

2/ But a lot of postal codes (at least 500) are not. And I checked : they are present in official database.

For most of them, they are "new" postal codes, created since 2017. In fact, the "new" created cities are in main geonames DB. But not their postal codes.

Examples :

- City "Arcisses" created in 2019 (geonames id : 6430795) (merged 3 old cities Brunelles, Coudreceau et Margon).
-> The postal codes of the old cities are in your Postal Code DB, but not the new city (ex : Brunelles FR / 28400 / ADMIN 24 / 28 / 284)

- City "Arandon-Passins" created in 2017 (geonames id : 6433281)
-> The postal code is the one of the old city "Arandon" : FR / 38510 / ADMIN 84 / 38 / 382

I didn't find the exact source end point in your datasources readme. But if I can help, do not hesitate.

See attached file for a screenshot. Source file was downloaded from here : https://www.data.gouv.fr/fr/datasets/base-officielle-des-codes-postaux/

Thanks,

Rouz
