It looks like GeoPlanet is dead (Is GeoPlanet dead?).

Is there a suitable alternative that covers Parents (preferably Ancestors) and Neighbours? If there's a name for this type of data, that'd be helpful.

Spatial data would be a plus, but I can get by without it for now.

This project may come to nothing, but in case I am ever able to charge for the service I need to make sure I don't shoot myself in the foot with a restrictive licence.


Maybe you want to take a look on Mapzen Who's On First gazeteer project. Not sure if that's what you want but looks like the closest thing to GeoPlanet out there.

  • That looks very promising. Seems Mapzen Search is powered by Who's On First, and Who's On First includes all the data from GeoPlanet. I'll look into it! – StringsOnFire Jun 16 '16 at 12:23
