Geonames Webservices!

Recently Geonames introduced a nice overview page, that basically makes this redundent (not to mention out of date!).

So I not sure whether to or this page, it all depends on if people find this page useful, let me know by clicking one of the buttons

Click a column header to resort, or click a webservice to see the offical documentation
