[mkgmap-dev] [GeoNames] GarminID's GoogleDocs spreadsheet

Hi all.

With thanks to Marcel Bokhorst, who created the gn2mp conversion script,
I created the GoogleDocs chart listing all of the features


I have cross-posted this message to the mkgmap developers, who are
working on the conversion program which takes the OpenStreetMap
Features and figures out exactly which Xml KEY/VALUE pairs match up
with the GarminIDs.

I'm still working on the charts, for example the detailed GarminIDs with the

And am currently working on finding a sample from GeoNames to show for
each feature.

So my 1 question for the geonames group is, what is the origional
source for the map feature schema? Was it created from scratch or
derived from somewhere?
