@datao @ubilabs Let me work on it a bit more… My idea is to allow for a dynamic data provider strategy, so that you can select whichever.

@datao @ubilabs Don’t know. GeoNames say their dataset contains all cities w/ 1000+ inhabitants. Maybe allow for data provider to be chosen.

For local-reverse-geocoder (npmjs.org/package/local-…), I was inspired by @webscraping’s Python code: webscraping.com/blog/Reverse-G…. Open source FTW!

local-reverse-geocoder npmjs.org/package/local-… stands on the shoulders of @ubilabs’ k-d tree & GeoNames dumps download.geonames.org/export/dump/ Thanks!

via Echofon

@pietercolpaert Merci :D I needed a local batch geocoder and there was none, so I made one ;-) All props to the GeoNames folks for the data!
