I agree it is a terrible mess. Not the new gaz.obo project. This is
an attempt to build an artefact in OBO
format for geographical locations. The current version has about
20,000 locations. We have a parse of about
45,000 from Genbank but it will take some time to check them and get
them in to this file.
The file is available from the OBO CVS site
