#3029 closed defect (worksforme)

Deleted node is still being used in index

Reported by: provolow Owned by: geocoding@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: nominatim Version:
Keywords: Cc:


The following record in Nominatim is wildly inaccurate, resulting in almost any Utah address showing up as being in "Weber County".

Question: On what, exactly, is this wildly large polygon associated with Weber County based? It encompasses several neighboring counties and messes up address searches in all of them. It is not remotely associated with the polygon defined for the county in OSM:

It appears that the Nominatim record may be linked to an OSM node that has been deleted or something: As such it seems like this record for Weber County should not even be indexed in Nominatim. Isn't this a bug? Or is there some way to fix this manually?

Can't really reproduce anymore as the DB was reimported.

There was a problem with deleted nodes not being properly deleted which has been fixed in the meantime.
