Description

I have two coordinates, which are only a few hundred meters away from each other (in the same city), but the reverse geocoding request places them in two different cities (a few hundred kilometers away from each other) and even countries.

Point one is correct calculated to be in Upper Austria, Linz (Austria) - http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/reverse?format=xml&lat=48.260269&lon=14.325599&zoom=18&addressdetails=1&accept-language=en

Point two (approximately 200 meters away) is calculated wrong to be in Graubünden, Switzerland - http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/reverse?format=xml&lat=48.260269&lon=14.324499&zoom=18&addressdetails=1&accept-language=en

A reverse geocoding request for point two should also return the city 'Linz', state 'Upper Austria' and Country 'Austria'.

Data problem. The boundary of Upper Austria was missing and that was the best guess Nominatim could take. A proper boundary has been added in the meantime.
