south korea address problems

Reported by: gouache95@… Owned by: geocoding@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: nominatim Version:
Keywords: wrong address Cc:


all address of korea are not correct. for example, city hall of seoul korea

nominatim) Seoul City Hall, Seoul Plaza, Taepyeongno 1 Ga, Junggu, Yeoncheongun, South Korea google maps) 31, Taepyeongno 1(il)-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul South Korea

nominatim has strange address 'Yeoncheongun'. 'Yeoncheongun' is different region name of korea. you can search 'Yeoncheon-gun, Gyeonggi-do South Korea'.

I think.. the field that prior of end is strange.

and another example is.

nominatim) Suwon, Suwonsipaldalgu, Dangjingun, South Korea, Asia google maps) Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea

this example also contain wrong 'Dangjungun'.

Yeoncheongun is the nearest place=region node for nominatim. This needs to be fixed in osm.

It can be fixed by making polygons for different administrative levels. See
