V 2.0 Shell Script for importing geonames.org data dumps into a MySQL database.

Usage: geonames_importer.sh -a "action"

Where "action" can be:

  • download-data Downloads the last packages of data available in GeoNames. An additional parameter with a download directory should be used.
  • create-db Creates the mysql database structure with no data.
  • create-tables Creates the tables in the current database. Useful if we want to import them in an exsiting db.
  • import-dumps Imports geonames data into db. A database is previously needed for this to work.
  • drop-db Removes the db completely.
  • truncate-db Removes geonames data from db.
