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

Hi Team,

OSM is a great boon for lot of developers adding an icing as its free as well.

My question here is we are doing address cleansing for some(Spain) data using Google APi(License), for few of the addresses Google Api is not returning StreetType for Spain addresses.

is there any way we could acheive finding the streettype for the exception addresses, which google couldnt find using OSM.

ex:- 121 Aldea de Las Cuevas Benidoleig 03759

we dont have any tag for streettype from the API output xml.

Please let me know if you need any additional details.

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by StreetType? Are you referring to "Calle", "Avenida", and so on? In OpenStreetmap these are generally part of the name, they are not recorded in separate data fields.

What answer would you expect for your example? Looking at the Cadastro https://www.sedecatastro.gob.es/, as far as I can see Aldea de las Cuevas is an "urbanizaciĆ³n" or housing development, and the houses are numbered within the urbanizaciĆ³n, with no names for the individual streets. In any case house numbers have not been mapped in OSM for this particular zone (https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/38.78528/-0.01323) so you wouldn't be able to find individual addresses.

Perhaps the Cadastro would be a more useful source for what you are trying to do? This document mentions a "TipoVia" field (possible values are listed in Annex 1) which might be of interest: http://www.catastro.meh.es/ws/webservices_catastro.doc

Sorry, I meant "Catastro" not "Cadastro".
