Description

Hello,

check this result:

http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/details.php?place_id=2133055671

Via Giovanni Bessarione (Type: highway:tertiary, way 109368643, 15, , Polygon, 0 GOTO)
Mazara del Vallo (Type: boundary:administrative, relation 39318, 8, , Point, 0.0842660761759271 GOTO)
Trapani (Type: boundary:administrative, relation 39166, 6, , Point, 0.201223571443735 GOTO)
Isola Grande (Type: boundary:administrative, way 10364827, 4, , Point, 0.247943334970063 GOTO)
91026 (Type: place:postcode, , , Point, 0.0237432108093155 GOTO)
Italia (Type: boundary:administrative, relation 365331, 2, , Point, 4.33148222531914 GOTO)

The admin_level=4 boundary detected is wrong. In fact, the nearest admin_level=4 is the coastline, and should be detected as relation "Sicilia".

I can't exactly tell what is behaviour is due to. "Italia", for example, is a relation spread all over Italy, so I'd say that "Sicilia" would be detected too. Maybe it prefers nearest closed ways instead of nearest (not closed) ways?

Kindly,

David

Works now, most likely a broken boundary that was fixed in the meantime.
