Hi all,

I recently discovered the site available by the US Army with millions of
world geonames (towns, etc) here
[1] http://earth-info.nga.mil/gns/html/namefiles.htm

The OSM wiki says that there is no legal problem using it, altought we
should put the source tag
[2] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/SWDB#GEOnet_Names_Server

Here is the XML explanations of the CVS that you can download from the link

The question is ? Anybody has developed a script to convert this CVS into a
KML or OSM file containing all the towns of a country?
This can be very useful for countries in developing countries almost empty.

Best Regards.
