Error reports
Contact:

info@geonames.org? (in many cases, it should be possible for users to update GeoNames themselves if they've created an account)

Ideally this information should be moved to the item for the reference and be transcluded from there.

Error reports ?[edit]

I is fairly clear that the ID provided in fur (Q197204) should have been in Poil (Q46569) (it can somehow be attributed to the homonymy in French). Do I just change the statements here, is there something else we should do to warn Geonoames people that their IDs are wrong ? --Zolo (talk) 19:18, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

@Zolo: the GeoNames Database contains incorrent data. As you can also edit the database, you can just fix it. (I can't because Google is blocked in China)--GZWDer (talk) 11:26, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
@Zolo: I fixed it, but the Geonames API hasn't yet picked up the change. I wonder why no Wikidatian fixed this in 2 years? --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 09:52, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Updates[edit]

It seems they are not fairly quick to update changing administrative layers. I was hoping to eventually find some introduced on 1.1.2015, but I guess I would have to go there and add them myself .. --- Jura 05:58, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

be careful about semantic URLs[edit]

The semantic URLs of geonames places are http://sws.geonames.org/$1/ (note slash at the end). http://sws.geonames.org/$1/about.rdf is an RDF document about the place, but the statements inside are made against the semantic URL. So I've changed "URI pattern for RDF resource" to http://sws.geonames.org/$1/.

Furthermore, I think that the "Formatter URL" should be changed to the same. Their site also resolves URLs without trailing slash, but the canonical URL has trailing slash. If there are no objections, I'll change the "Formatter URL" too. --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 09:46, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, can you help me to understand why an item accessible using the www subdomain cannot be accessed using the sws subdomain or the equivalent wikidata property? Pietro (talk) 07:29, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pietro: That's strange. You should probably ask GeoNames about it. I'm not sure why they would behave differently. - Nikki (talk) 13:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Nikki: I posted a comment on their forum, but it has not been published up to now (the forum is moderated). Do you know any other way to contact them? Pietro (talk) 20:21, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pietro: Sorry for the slow response. They have an email address (info@geonames.org) linked from the bottom of various pages (I saw it on the error page and it's also on the forum pages). It seems like this particular one has been fixed now though. - Nikki (talk) 10:03, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
@Nikki: thank you for your attention. That email address is only for commercial users. Anyway, there is a delay of about a week between the adding of a new item and its availability on the sws domain, maybe depending on an approval process. Pietro (talk) 16:37, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
