Description

Original Point is at 10.945315,123.156572

http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?format=json&zoom=18&lat=10.945315&lon=123.156572

Results to:

{"place_id":"9150277396","licence":"Data \u00a9 OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0. http:\/\/www.openstreetmap.org\/copyright","osm_type":"relation","osm_id":"3321450","lat":"12.07177645","lon":"123.468953433996","display_name":"landuse #uniHD, Masbate, Carles, Masbate, Philippines","address":{"meadow":"landuse #uniHD","city":"Masbate","county":"Carles","state":"Masbate","country":"Philippines","country_code":"ph"}}

The address resolved is in Masbate area. This is is more than 140km away.

The address also resolved to county:Carles, which is part of Iloilo Province, of the Panay island.

The northern part of islands Negros and Panay, PH ... seem to resolve to Masbate (an island and a province/region away).

Various zoom levels yield the same result.

Thanks and regards,

Dex
