Thanks to your nice answers and comments I found a solution to my problem: FlightPath[cities_List, pro_: "AzimuthalEquidistant"] := Module[{lc = Length@cities, color, dest, dist, entity, legend, pair, path}, color = {Red, Darker@Green, Blue, Black, Orange, Purple}; entity = Interpreter["City"][#] & /@ cities; dest = GeoPosition@First@entity; ...

mypin1 = Graphics3D[Table[{If[h > 14, Red, LightBlue], Cylinder[{{0, 0, h}, {0, 0, h + 0.95}}, 1]}, {h, 1, 19}], Boxed -> False] mypin2 = Graphics3D[ Table[Cylinder[{{0, 0, h}, {0, 0, h + 0.95}}, 1], {h, 1, 9}], Boxed -> False]; GeoGraphics[ { GeoPosition[{51.5144, -0.08028}], GeoMarker[ GeoPosition[{51.5144, -0.08028}], ...

Use Interpreter without federal state or country. Works even for small german towns :) Interpreter["City"]["Memmingen"] GeoPosition[%] GeoGraphics[%] EDIT: Also you could ask for the airport: town = Interpreter["City"]["Memmingen"]; airport = Interpreter["Airport"]["Memmingen"]; GeoPosition[{town, airport}] or just use the nearest airport ...

You could use the official ICAO abbreviation: Entity["Airport", "KLAX"] which makes sense because you will only be able to use officially named airports most of the time anyway. You can always get those (or the city details) via a W|A query and work your way from there (no googling involved): or like this (although it misses Van Nuys):

What datum was used for your geodata? Google Maps uses WGS84/Pseudo-Mercator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Mercator) and it does not seem to align well with your data. The following was copied from Mark McClure (How to combine more locations (GPS coordinates inside one city) with Google map?) geodata = { {"30\[Degree]16'38.43''N", ...
