Open Data: List / database of Lebanese cities and villages grouped by districts and area (Free Download)
a while back, I was looking for a list of Lebanese cities and villages to use while building an application.
The most useful thing i could find was on http://www.lebanon.cd/Lebanese-cities.htm – It is a nice list of 1100+ cities/villages arranged by district and area.
However the above exists in the form of HTML – not raw data… in other words, it is not easily re-usable.
After a few scripts, I turned the html into a public google fusion table findable in search and all.
Here is a link to the fusion table datasource https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1rxUVz_3qeOVPmN_kPCHumsQ_crEFyzCbrvPU28A (easy to use stuff – just click the link)
If you are not familiar with Fusion tables, here is a CSV for you to download.
Hope that turns out useful – more open data to come!
