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


When importing OSM data into one's own Nominatim DB, is there a way to configure the level of granularity of geographic data to support in it? I'd really benefit from cutting import times if that's so, since I can do with a much coarser resolution in search results for my use case. I really only need city-level responses, but I'm not even sure if that makes sense conceptually.

Thank you!

http://nominatim.org/release-docs/latest/admin/Import-and-Update/#choosing-the-data-to-import explains how to choose countries and how to filter data, e.g. not importing streets and house numbers.
