    [Not sure where I should post this, but here looks like as good a spot as any. Mods: feel free to move it somewhere more suitable.]

    While they "regenerate the database" you can make your own geocoder. Our friends over at have kindly given us an API to their database, so it's pretty easy to roll your own.

    If you want a quick tutorial on how to make a request, parse the response, and generate a worldwind:// link, I've written it up here: roll your own geocoder. There's a working demo linked from the bottom, so go try it out and then get cracking on your own versions.

    (You'll need access to a webserver with PHP installed, but other than that it's pretty straighforward.)
