Base Location Geonames Import

This module adds a wizard to import cities and/or better zip entries from Geonames database.


To install this module, you need the Python library 'requests'.


To access the menu to import better zip entries from Geonames, you must add yourself to the groups Technical features and Sales manager.

If want want/need to modify the default URL (http://download.geonames.org/export/zip/), you can set the geonames.url system parameter.


Go to Settings > Technical > Cities/Locations Management > Import from Geonames, and click on it to open a wizard.

When you start the wizard, it will ask you to select a country. If the country has been set-up to require the entry of cites from a list you will be able to indicate if you want to import the cities or zip codes.

Then, for the selected country, it will delete all the current better zip entries, download the latest version of the list of cities from geonames.org and create new better zip entries.
