Hi

I am about to launch a closed site where properties will be posted from all around the world...literally... I started uploading the location-files by country but it is a tedious process...makes also the database very slow at times....but worst of all...some of the data is just wrong.

I am from Finland myself and looked at the content of the file, and there were regions that I had never heard of .....same goes for cities....a colleague of mine looked at the data for Denmark and Czech Republic and it is the same thing.

So my question is, if there are updated files available....or could we even start a location library for "cleaned up files". Since I am from Finland but live in Germany, I could easily provide a file for those two countries...but I would love to get as many of the other countries as well with verified content.
Surely we have many nationalities represented in this community and we could cover a greate deal of the countries just amongst ourselves....each cleaning up their own country and making the file available for others.

Could we please do that??

Cheers,
Kimmo
