Oh, sorry, you're right of course!

Strange, using the browser interface of geonames.org I can find it without any problem! :?:

Just updated to 1.7.2 and I didn't have any problem to get three correct results if I do an online search for 'Schwäbisch Gmünd'. :!:

Hi Menion!

I'm still testing the offline search and I found out that the result could be optimized through the used feature codes  ;).

The 8th field in the .txt data file is the feature code. This code describes the kind of result:

ADM1, ADM2, ADM3, ADM4, ADMD, PPL:   should be used for the city names / place names (and only these 6)
AIRP:  search for airport
RSTN: search for railroad station
HTL: search for hotel

It would be absolute funtastic if you could add a selection box where all these 4 major things could be selected. By default only "city name" should be on.
The above 4 lines can be selected to on or off. If "all" is selected, then the above 4 are all "off" and the search will be done without the use of the feature codes.

i.e.

(o)  city name / place name
(  )  airport
(  )  railroad station
(  )  hotel
-----------------------------------
(  )  all


Menion, what do you think about this?   ;)  :)
