Description

User dandoen reports:

If I want to look up members in The Netherlands via http://www.bewelcome.org/places/NL I find that most names of the provinces start with the word 'Province', while three of them don't. Can that be adjusted?

  • Milestone changed from unassigned to 1.3
  • Owner set to shevek
  • Status changed from new to assigned

What's the desired output? With 'province' or without?

The update for browse countries I'm currently working on will address this as a side effect. Therefore I assign the ticket to myself.

The desired output is without 'province'.

The data used comes from geonames.org. For English the resulting set contains 5 provinces that do not include province.

If you choose the Dutch language with the new implementation no 'Provincie' will be visible.

Do you take the column 'name of subdivision' from http://www.geonames.org/NL/administrative-division-netherlands.html? I guess the 'type' of subdivision was used in the old implementation.

  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to unassigned

This would be covered by the move to geonames therefore it will likelöy not happen for 1.3. Removing milestone.

  • Milestone changed from unassigned to 1.9

Should be fixed while updating the geonames database.

  • Milestone changed from 1.9 to 1.10

Postponed to 1.10.

Geonames update yielded the following results for the Netherlands: The word Province is no longer part of the regions' names in Dutch but remains part of some provinces name in other languages.
