Currently I am using Factual's world geographies api to do a location search so if you search london, london england should appear or if you search new york city, new york city will appear.

I am having trouble because there is no filters like population that I can use to sort by the best match.

Here is factuals data. I found a download for geoplanet here but I can't seem to find any data set with these sorts of filters.

Do I need to find a better data set or am I just not structuring the query correctly?
