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

Hi all,

Since a few weeks we've running a self-hosted Nominatim server now. The server is running like a gem, but we noticed a little difference in some of our queries sometimes.


When we request a reverse query with lat/lon data on our self-hosted server, we are receiving (almost) the same information as the nominatim.openstreetmap.org API, but unfortunately the municipality and also the hamlet is sometimes missing on our self-hosted server.

Does anyone have an idea how to add these missing municipality/hamlet details to our output?

Many thanks in advance!

Kind regards, Randy Dautzenberg

Try format=geocodejson instead of format=jsonv2 - are you still seeing differences?

Hi Frederik,

Many thanks for your very quick response! I've tried to add the format=geocodejson instead of format=jsonv2.

There is a little difference in the city and locality this time. Does that mean there's something wrong with our self-hosted server?


Again many thanks for the quick reply!

Kind regards, Randy
