Hello, Gian,
 
I am not sure that I understand you exactly. Do you mean that the Loadstone
POI system only needs four of the 19 fields of information that GeoNames
supplies? 
 
All the best,

Hi
Is it a good way to use the POI Converter for it? I know some data get lost.

Hello Kai,
 
You could start with the German GeoNames file. You will find this at:
http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/de.zip
 
This will give you a wide variety of topographical features including cities
and towns. The GeoNames file needs to be modified to work in Loadstone and
there are now a few ways to do that. To make it more relevant to your own
location I can modify the GeoNames file to sort the features so that those
nearest to you appear at the beginning of the file. This should make it
easier for you to spot the closest names in the file and I believe it will
help Loadstone to find the points more quickly.
 
Let me know if you would like a hand.
 

All the best,


Cearbhall

Hi Kai!
Sure it'll work anywhere. That's the beauty of it. However last time I
looked there weren't many points in and around Hamburg available on the
point exchange website. So you'll have to start entering points yourself.
Maybe you can get the ball rolling and interest some more people in using
Loadstone. You could hook up with the computer and technology group of the
BSVH.
Cheers,
Robbie Sandberg

Hi Shawn and list!
 
Don't worry. Whatever is developed will be donated. If you ever expect to
visit New Zealand, the information might even be useful to you. They have
given some input already and will continue to do so. The folks I met with
are already convinced of the usefulness of what is there already so I didn't
need to sell it any harder anyway.
 
Looking forward to whatever happens.
 
Cheers,
Dave

I can't be the only one who read that message and said "What?" Can you 
provide anymore detail? Is there some feature people want that'll effect 
data donated?

get into a discussion about dates because releases will come when they are
ready, and that is as it should be.
