Hello, I am trying to get Geo coordinates from a .NET Web App using HttpWebRequest and requesting this link: https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=2+$+2A+Cyclone+Street+3995+WONTHAGGI&country=au&format=json&addressdetails=1. In my app, I receive 10 results but none of them are from Australia. If a request the same link from Postman, I receive one result from Australia. Why the difference? Should I set something specific in the web app? Thanks.

Without the relevant code it is going to be very hard to help you with this. Are you escaping the URL properly in your app?

Unrelated to your issue: Use &countrycode=au, not &country=au. &country is part of the 'Alternative query string format' (http://nominatim.org/release-docs/latest/api/Search/) and doesn't mix well if &q is already set.

I changed &country to &countrycode. Thanks.

I can paste here the code, sure, but it's something very simple:

string osmLink = "https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=2+$+2A+Cyclone+Street+3995+WONTHAGGI&country=au&format=json&addressdetails=1";

HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(osmLink); myRequest.Method = "GET"; myRequest.UserAgent = "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.0.3705;)";

WebResponse myResponse = myRequest.GetResponse();

string responseText = string.Empty; using (var reader = new StreamReader(myResponse.GetResponseStream(), System.Text.Encoding.UTF8)) { responseText = reader.ReadToEnd().Trim(); }
