World country/region/city database script

Does anyone know whether one can purchase a database-script over world countries, regions and cities. This script is to be used in connection with a MySQL-database. If so, how much would this script approx. cost and where can it be purchased?

cheers,

Søren K.

I don't have the reference handy, but there are companies out there that you can buy Zip code databases from. Maybe searching for such databases would lead you in the right direction.

The database that you can query on that site is the complete database, but
a lot of cities are not present, indeed. The fact is, the main goal of that db is
to provide economical, demographics and political data about each country.

Now they have another (very complete) database with more than 1,800,000 cities/towns.
You can go to the site using the link given in the previous post (http://www.assemblysys.com/worldstats/countries_DB.php), or
through http://dataservices.assemblysys.com

Hope that helps.

Michaël

Countrydatabase

I have found the database at http://www.countrydatabase.dk
more useful. It is simpel to use and cheaper than Assemblysys

Also you receive free updates twice a year.

Note that the database on http://www.assemblysys.com/dataServices/worldCities.php is far more complete and detailed than the other one, and still reasonably priced, I think.

Yep - I've come across a great continent/region/country/city database script. Go to countrydatabase(dot)dk

Only costs 15 euro and easily installed. Saves you a LOT of time

good database

i found a decent database at worldcitiesdatabase.info

Not as detailed as many out there, but good enough for most applications.

If you plan to use Ajax or similar methods to make a multilevel selector, you definitely don't want to use databases that have over a million entries, it would simply be too slow.
