UK Counties

Post by aeron » Sat Jun 03, 2017 3:37 pm

1. Why does the fill up in the entering places box always enter UK counties as for example "County of Buckinghamshire" instead of just Buckinghamshire it is annoying to have to edit this each time? Nobody the the UK would every enter and address like that (with the exception of County Durham and I think some NI counties) no county would be written like that we just use the county name e.g. Bedfordshire, Lancashire, Norkolk, Devon, Somerset.

2. As of Heredis 2017 in the places search of same box quite a few places are coming up as in Avon not only does this county no longer exist but most of the places were never in Avon and are no where near it. I am certain that some if not all of these places were more correctly identified in Heredis 2014.

Unfortunately this is not yet possible in Heredis but we are working towards implementing some tools that would make it possible to bulk modify places present in your file.
