#5121 closed enhancement (fixed)

Look for POI's in building polygon's with a building addr tag

Description

I'd like to request an enhancement to nominatim to return the address when searching for a POI that is within a building outline. If the POI does not have an addr tag and the building outline contains an addr tag, then return the POI's address. For example: search for Guild 45th Theatre currently nominatim returns: Cinema Guild 45th Theatre, North 45th Street, Fremont, Wallingford, Seattle, King, Washington, 98103, United States of America

Since the POI does not contain an address and the building outline does, I'd like to see nominatim return: Cinema Guild 45th Theatre, 2215, North 45th Street, Fremont, Wallingford, Seattle, King, Washington, 98103, United States of America

I believe this additional information would help by providing a more complete search results.

I - and lots of other people I talk to - support this. I don't think it's a feature enhancement, but a bugfix, because as it is right now, Nominatim returns a wrong address instead of none. I guess this could be categorized as a bug.

It would be a huge improvement to fix this, because many people add redundant address-data to POIs inside buildings just to get Nominatim display the right address. BUT: if the POI isn't rendered as a symbol but as a housenumber (which happens for a lot of POIs), you sometimes see non-existing housenumbers like "11" when it's really housenumber 1 which has a POI with an extra housenumber 1 in it that gets rendered right next to the building's.
