Global Elements offers a range of products derived from Global Insight Plus. Created in response to frequent client requests for continental place gazetteers and specialist map layers, Global Elements delivers the same data quality and consistency in component form.
Six continental place gazetteers are available with generous coverage of the following regions.
|Continent/Region||Number of Places|
|Africa & Middle East||>121,000|
|Asia & Middle East||>206.000|
Global Elements gazetteers cover their respective areas at 1:1,000,000 scale. Like Global Insight, names are in local and alternative forms (English conventional name, foreign language forms, second national language or long/short form).
The gazetteers are an excellent choice for users performing continental geocoding by place name. The alternative names layer allows an advanced geocoder to pick up many places with alternative spellings. Whether your data contains Geneva / Genève, Helsinki / Helsingfors or Köln / Cologne, Global Elements gazetteers will match the name to provide superior geocoding hit rates.
The extensive place name gazetteer allows rapid location of almost any city, town or village in each continental area. Place data records include country name and 1st level administrative region (where available) which assists when identifying an ambiguous name.
For world-wide gazetteer coverage, see Global Insight.
