Resultados de OpenStreetMap Nominatim

Calle Las Parras, Alfacar, Provincia de Granada, Andalucía, 18170, España

Puedes ver que en ambos las posiciones geográficas son distintas.

Pero mucho peor: código postal 18170 se encuentra a unos cien kilómetros de la posición dada, en la costa

(Podéis verlo en google map)

¿Existe alguna solución? Yo estoy empleando Nominatim en mis aplicaciones y creo que voy a tener que pasarme a googlemap

Remember, Nominatim is fundamentally about names, i.e. named objects in OSM. Not every spot on the world's surface has its own name. So if you enter a location, I guess Nominatim will take you to the nearest named object it can find. There are lots of streets with no name in the vicinity, but Nominatim doesn't know about them: it's all about names.

At least, that's my best guess.

The two positions are clearly in different streets

That's correct. Unnamed streets are not imported into Nominatim. In this case it returns a result about 200m away.

Hi Arcadio, Looking at your previous questions you also speak English. Please use English on the help forum. If you want to report a bug with Nominatim ("18170 zip code is located about one hundred kilometers from the given position on the coast") consider opening an issue on

There is nothing wrong in using a local language for contacting local people or if English is not very well understood.
