Hey, I saw on the allcountries.txt several rows with accuracy value not in the legend. It says "accuracy : accuracy of lat/lng from 1=estimated, 4=geonameid, 6=centroid of addresses or shape" but they are some accuracy values (3 and 5); I don't know what does it mean.


Best regards,
Grégoire

It means 6 is the max and 1 is the min. The other values are in between.
So 2 is better than 1 but not as good as 3, etc.

Best Regards

Marc

Hi All,

I am a beginner.

I want to create my own place ontology (possibly by initializing it from geonames). and Provide association name of place: geometry

Help me please.

Best regards.
