The South Australian Government provides datasets for Open Street Map

The datasets are located at

Is there anyway to import this data for Geocoding purposes into my nominatim/tile servers?

When I am searching addresses it only shows the street in the search box and not the number

However, when I go to I am able to search via the full street name

An example would be, currently when I search for "2 Fernilee Avenue, Tea Tree Gully" it only shows "Fernilee Avenue, Tea Tree Gully". It is missing the street number.

But when I search on the above link it works perfectly

To put it in short, can any of the data files offered be added into OSM system in order to provide more complete address searches

Best Regards

If you need more complete address coverage than what's in OSM at the moment and you're running your own nominatim/tile servers, you could use GNAF via OpenAddresses ( which can be transformed with oa2osm into an OSM XML file for easier ingestion into the OSM tool pipeline.

Although OpenStreetMap has many addresses mapped, in Australia it's not that complete yet.

Although the South Australian government has completed the OSMF CC BY waiver to make their CC BY 4.0 licensed open data from usable in OpenStreetMap, address points aren't included in this data currently, even if it was the Import Guidelines would need to be followed.
