Here's a SQLite script that I find useful for finding places that I need to work on for abbreviated names or adding geo-coordinates or other inspection: Places - Frequency of Use. Knowing that a place is heavily used in a database gives it a higher priority for my attention than simply wading through the Place List alphabetically although, ultimately, I will want coordinates for every one. Abbreviations are only warranted if the place is used more than once, and then, most likely only if used more than once for the same person's events.
