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 http://www.maxmind.com.

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.
