Description

I have been looking for some osm nodes using Nominatim but they keep coming up not found. In particular I am looking for node 583465712 and the xml comes back as OSM ID Not Found: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse.php?format=xml&osm_type=N&osm_id=583465712&zoom=18

However going to OpenStreetMap page I can see that this node does exist: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/583465712 http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/node/583465712/1

Why is there a difference in the data that Nominatim pulls and what OpenStreetMap has?

Thanks

Use the lat and lon from the node instead, so for your "node 583465712" it would be: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse.php?format=xml&osm_type=N&lat=28.605641&lon=-81.3134533&zoom=18

I'm not a Nominatim developer, but I believe nominatim only support reverse look up for POIs, e.g. http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse.php?format=xml&osm_type=N&osm_id=265661385&zoom=18 You are free to prove me wrong, until then I'm closing this bug.
