cities • This is a slightly modified version of MaxMind's "World Cities and Postal Code Databases", Copyright (c) 2007 MaxMind LLC. I just changed the double-quotes in names to apostrophes to make it more compatible with PAT's quoting scheme. As per their license, I declare that this product includes data created by MaxMind, available from

The full dataset has about 2.7 million records, but only 47,000 include population. The included makefile (cities.mak) parses the original plain-text dataset and produces the PAT binary version plus two subsets: just those records with a population (citypop) and just the top 100 most populous cities (city100).

See the data page for unpacking instructions.
