I'd check out GeoBytes. Their free services page (http://www.geobytes.com/FreeServices.htm) has a downloadable database of the worlds cities with regions, countries, and coordinates (latitude/longitude). Just look for "GeoWorldMap" on the free services page.

There's also MaxMind's free cities database, at: http://www.maxmind.com/app/worldcities
It's got cities, countries, states/provinces, latitude/longitude, and city populations.

Both places also have city-to-IP-address mappings available as paid services (MaxMind's service is around $400, GeoBytes has a more complicated pricing system).

Hope that helps.

No problem! Glad they helped.

Also, if you still need another, there's World Gazetteer. They've got a nice database of cities and countries with populations as well. I believe that MaxMind and possibly GeoBytes get some of their information from them. (I didn't link to them earlier because their site wasn't loading, but it seems fine now.)

Hi,

You can download text file for cities and countries from

geodatasource dot com

After download the text file you can use any where in your own requirements.

Thanks
Asif

When I was looking for a decent database of world cities for my web project, I tried using all of the free city databases out there. I even paid for a couple of them.

But none of them satisfied me. They either had too much useless information (like longitudes, administrative subdivisions for tiny countries, or thousands and thousands of entries for small countries) or too little.

This is why I decided to create my own database.

After that was done I decided to share the results of my work with the world.

If you are interested, visit worldcitiesdatabase. info and see if my database is right for you.

If anyone still catches this thread - GeoNames Data has a daily database dump for all countries that you can download in a text file at geonames[dot]org/export/
