Usage guideline

  • Geonames geographical name decoding is used.
  • It can be checked at geonames whether the geographical name exists or not.
  • If it exits, then the geographical coordinate of the name can be decoded and the map view can be rendered.
  • An alternative name for existing can be created, see geonames manual.
  • If it does not exist, then it can be created. Detail information can be checked at geonames manual.
  • Normally it takes a few days until the API can decode the newly added name, see geonames update.
