For our webstore we'd like to create an address auto-completion feature to improve data accuracy, very much like you can test here

Is it possible to export a comma-separated file (or XML) with just the following information, but from all major countries world-wide on a single click?

  • Country
  • State
  • City
  • ZIP Code/Postal Code
  • Street

No GPS data is needed.

Why not just build you own openstreetmap server and just query that internally via nominatim? The JSON formated output would be real easy to parse client side with jquery, so you could simply call your own nominatim server and periodicalyl sync the data.

Hello Anand, please open a new question (with more details and examples!!) on this FAQ site for your aim.

But before, please do intensive research on this site about "export Postalcode" or similar queries ... there have been already questions AND answers on that topic.
