Is this project still actively in development Arthur?  Because the SCAR
Antarctic Gazetteer could be added. It was based in Italy, now at the
Australian Antarctic Data Centre under
http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/    It has 36,000 place names in a
freely downloadable Access database.

Would be good to see that data used in BioGeomancer, which currently has
almost nothing for place names down there. Lots of biodiversity info
pertains to Antarctica.
