Product Description

Our worldCities geographical database is normalized, which makes it very efficient, as well as easy to use. Indeed, the tables containing different types of data (names, hierarchy, data description, etc…) can all be linked using a single ID.

Besides the main worldCities database, which contains continents, countries, administrative divisions and populated places (cities, towns, villages, etc…), other pieces of data are available in external modules. The currently available worldCities Extensions are GPS Coordinates and Language Pack. You can thus pick and choose what you need without having to purchase data you won’t use.

Main features

  • Populated places classified in up-to 4 levels of administrative divisions (states, provinces, etc…)
  • Continents, regions and subregions
  • Hierarchy in both parent-child and pre-ordered tree traversal
  • Names in local language (in their romanized form when the local language uses a non-latin writing system)
  • English names (not available for all cities and states records)
  • All names both with and without diacritics and special characters
  • Free unlimited e-mail support
  • Additional features in worldCities Extensions:
    • 319,000 translations and local names in non-latin writing systems. Available in the Language Pack worldCities Extension
    • Latitude and longitude (in decimal degrees) of all of populated places. Available in the GPS Coordinates worldCities Extension
