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


I am testing nominatim API and apparently was blocked. I think I didn't respect the usage policy limits, regarding cache of similar requests. I didn't noticed this point at first sight.

Could you please unblock my IP so that I may continue my tests (and improve my code) ?

My public IP is :

Is there other usages policies I should respect ?

Many Thanks in advance

Better try to contact the admins via IRC on #osm-dev or #osm. And there are other usage policies, for example the tile usage policy.

Thanks, I'll try and see it. I also add a ticketin trac.openstreetmap.org

Personally, I wouldn't open a ticket on trac unless you're logging a bug.

Note that (a) there are other public nominatim instances and (b) you could set up your own.
