How to correct data

I had a first look at the quality of the data (cities in Germany).
Looking at the database there are currently only 465 cities and a lot of duplicates. Mainly there are typos and different spellings (regarding Umlauts).

We are planning to integrate at IP.Geolocation to one of our services and we would like to use your data anyway we would also like to improve the data !

Is there any way to contribute correction and new data (IP-ranges) in a defined way ? Do you already have any contributions from ISPs in Germany (e.g. Deutsche Telekom etc. )

regards

Carsten

There are 2 main ways to contribute data corrections, one is using the bulk (netblock) correction tool found on the home page (there's a link there) and the other link on the homepage as well will correct 1 address. So you have a choice between the many-or-one

We're considering other "automated" ways of data correction from trusted sources as well (such as ISPs, etc)
