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


Hello everyone,

I would like to know how to get the lat and long of users using OSM map, and Nomatim or something else, without using google services, because It wont work in China and few other countries.

My goal is to let users find people in specific location, so when they make a research via Elasticsearch, it will show them choosen located users with a radius range.

Our website is running under symfony3 , Php.

hope someone can help us, Thank's by advance

Best regards

The question isn't clear. What is your actual input and desired output ? So far this question seems unrelated to OSM, and a quick duckduck search points towards https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/1.4/query-dsl-geo-shape-query.html

OSM and other OSM-related software can't tell you where a user is. It would be the location services in the user's device/browser that would do that.
