First, cool patch, it fixes some problems (including the mirrored coordinates
I had no time to look at the code, yet, but I ran a few manual tests. There
are some problems with the newly imported Geonames cities:
* Hamburg (~ 10° 10' 07,1"E, 53° 26' 29,9"N), one of the largest cities in
Germany, is not shown. Perhaps other important cities are missing as well.
* I think taking the asciiName is still a Problem with Wikipedia languages
other than english. For example the german city Eckernförde (~ 9° 50' 22,6"E,
54° 28' 13,6"N):
- The english version of wikipedia accepts the asciiName “Eckernforde”
- The german version does not accept the asciiName “Eckernforde” as nobody
in Germany would write it like that
