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

I am creating a free energy awareness/efficiency application as a path to renewable energy for which I need irradiation data. I found Latitude/Longitude data on the NASA website, but now I need to convert the lat/long positions I have to Country/State/City positions. Can somebody advise me where I can get a database of Lat/Long=Country/State/City data? Alternatively a database with irradiation data for Country/State/City.

Thanks so much

"lat/long positions" to "Country/State/City name" is reverse geocoding. See Nominatim in our docu wiki. You could use a nominatim service to convert the lat/lon positions to a text string. Please comply to the usage policy of the service which you are using (if you do not set up your own Nominatim server). As mentioned there, the OSM copyright also needs to be respected.
