    initial v1  
    55> The database we have is primarily city-centric. It has some region information, but it's not detailed or comprehensive enough to fully support. The API does try to match inputs other than cities, but we only explicitly mention cities in the instructions because that's the only thing we can guarantee will work.

    7 Worth noting that the database we've been using says "city" but in this context, city means town. We've used a data source which includes town with a population of >1k (or an administrative area of 1k, so town X of 500 and 500 in the surrounding area, where X is the common point would be included). For `countrycode = GB` there were 3.6k 'towns' with 14k different spellings and alternate names.
