I'm looking for a database containing city name, location coordinates, and timezone. I thought this would be simple to find, but it has proven difficult.

(I don't see this question covered elsewhere on the site. Perhaps because it's just too basic. Also, I probably need tagging help.)

  • @philshem So I was just on the wrong site. . . Do those questions deserve to be migrated here, am I off topic, or neither? Just wondering.

The GeoNames database gives you both the geo-coordinates and the timezone for each city with a population greater than 1k.

Here's a version of that DB with a direct access to an API and a map on OpenDataSoft (disclaimer: I work for OpenDataSoft).



ESRI has their Open data on their website that might be useful for you. Check that out.



I found this today that might be helpful. https://github.com/fulvio999/world_city_location_times/tree/master
