TclWorld Gazetteer

Richard Suchenwirth - For friends of the upcoming TclWorld map tool (formerly known as tkWorld), here's a little global gazetteer that gives latitudes and longitudes (N and W being positive) for some 200 capitals and major cities of the world (adapted and digested from [2 ], North American data from [1 ], so you can start populating your world ;-). Again I'm happy that I picked absolute coordinates for the data format, so these city locations fit like a hand in a glove with the other area or outline data:

RS 2007-06-21: Note that for displaying these data on a canvas, the two coordinates are to be taken as y and -x.

APW 2007-06-21: Added 2 places where Tcler's are living (one being more a little village). Are there other categories instead of "city"?
