Populated Places in North America

Build geo/topo/csv files for major Cities & Capitals in US, Canada & Mexico

Why?

This is similar to the us-cities target, but:

  • Uses the Populated places shape file
  • Contains far less points for cities/towns
  • Includes places in Canada & Mexico
  • Classifies 'places' based on the POPCLASS instead of simply population.
  • Has a property to denote Capital cities
