Query API for Open Data - including GeoNames

Julius Chrobak
hi all, here is something you might be interested in. 

https://mingle.io is a new service for developers which includes the popular GeoNames database. Apart from other Open Data sets it's going to contain various geodata as well. For example, we are looking at exposing OpenPOIs through this Query API.

hi all, as a follow up to my last post. I said we were looking at exposing OpenPOIs on mingle.io. Instead we went for the full extract of the POIs available in the OpenStreetMap, see example.

I wrote more about the reasons why we did it in our press release on the slashgeo.org portal.

feedback and comments are appreciated :) 

Thank you!
Julius
