Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a working Nominatim install.

Now i want to add in the nominatim database a custom tag column like for example an admin 20 level attribute, and i want to have it in my Nominatim requests.

If i simply add it in the nominatim database, how can can I retrieve it with Nominatim. So i just need to geocode as usual, but get also that attribute, which is stored for every way.

Does this is feasible? Thank you advance!

Usually, returning additional data is just a question of modifying the template snippet for the selected output format in lib/templates. This of course requires that the data is actually stored with the object.

So, if I put the data in the placex table, I can modify the lib/templates and request those column in the query?

Did you ever confirm this to work mihai?

I'm trying to do something similar myself, I'd like to create a custom key:value pair and be able to query the location using Nominatim
