Dear Geetha,

I have put together a conversion tool that works with NMEA data and would
welcome a chance to try it on your geoname.org material. Would you be
willing to send it to me as an attachment so that I can try it out? If it
works, I would be happy to share conversion tool  with the list. 

All the best,

Hi Gian,

We (Pranav, Kiran and me from India) did explore the possibility of
converting the points file on geoname.org for India into a
Loadstone-compatible format. Given the size of the points file and the
discrepancy between the two formats, manual cleanup would involve a great
deal of effort.  Should you decide to write a script/macro to perform the
conversion, we would appreciate it if you could share it on the list.
