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


I am wondering if there is a xml schema definition (or dtd) for the xml formated responses of the nominatim services for

  • geocoding
  • reverse geocoding

Seems like there is no XML schema or DTD. Neither does the wiki page mention any nor does the repository include it. Also the query results would contain a schema/doctype line with a link to such a file if there were any, I guess.

I think it would be the best to ask the maintainer Twain directly.

This page just lists XML Schema files for the OSM XML format which is not related to the XML file of a Nominatim response.

True, no .xsd found specifically for a Nominatim (name) search response, but would that response not be entirely contained by the overall osm .xsd? Does Nominatuim have additional data?
