COUNTRY Statement

The COUNTRY statement sets an optional country name attribute.

The COUNTRY name is written into the created GBFS file. If you do not supply a Country attribute, the Country for the GBFS file is set to Country.Unknown. A defined country is necessary if you want the data in the GBFS file to be available for Geocoding. If you do not supply a country name, any GeoCoder in your applications will ignore the data from this file.

The COUNTRY is one of the Attributes that can optionally be specified at the start of the import file. All of these attributes are optional, but if you include any, they must be specified in the following order (OUTPUT first, REGIONS last):

  • OUTPUTSets the filename of the output GBFS file
    DATASETSets an arbitrary name for this dataset
    COPYRIGHTSets a copyright for this dataset
    COUNTRYSets the name of the country that this dataset represents
    UNITSSets the unit system that this dataset uses - Metric or Imperial
    REGIONSSets the region information for this dataset


The COUNTRY statement must be placed at the start of the .alchemy import script alongside any other attribute statements, but before any non-attribute statements. Order of attribute statements is important.
