#4575 closed defect (duplicate)

Wrong province(state) in address even after is_in tag is specified

After fixing the issue that was ticket #4557, I'm now noticing that Nominatim is picking the wrong, adjacent province for the addresses for many of the cities in Gyeonggi-do (Gyeonggi Province). Here are a few examples.


This city is well within Gyeonggi-do's border, yet it's being listed under Gangwon-do.


This one simply doesn't have any province assigned to it.


This one shows up to be under Chungcheongbuk-do.

What's interesting to note is that these nodes are linked to admin borders, and these properly list them under Gyeonggi-do:

I'm suspecting that Gyeonggi-do node... somehow not properly assigned to the cities. I've even explicitly put is_in tags in the city nodes as FAQ suggested, but it didn't do any good.

This is caused by bug #4550, already fixed in code. It will be deployed with the next reimport in a few weeks.

NB: those cities appear in the county relation with role 'label'. This sounds like it is incorrect. I presume that the county and the city are not the same but that the city is the administrative centre of the county. In that case the role should be 'admin_centre'. (Incidentally, changing this will also work around this bug.)
