Comprehensive list of Latitude and Longitude values of cities round the world
i would like to know if is out there any downloadable database of world locations,
i know there is openstreetmap db available, but i would like somenthing lighter then that, i just would like a world cities + region + nation + coordinates db, cause my intent is just to query the db to find near places to a given city.
So doesn't matter if db has cities with 1K population for example, i don't need them all, i just need the more/main important cities up to 20/30K citizens i mean and their related coordinates + region + nation , thanks i know it should be like it there isn't out there :P
Maybe someone could help me then on querying openstreetmap db to remove all not needed data !?
