Description

I've used this request to reverse geocode addresses by lat lon: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?format=json&lat=53.931012&lon=27.634799&zoom=18&addressdetails=1 I've had following response: {

"licence" : "Data © OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0. http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright", "osm_id" : "305685489", "address" : {

"suburb" : "Восток", "city" : "Minsk", "house_number" : "117", "road" : "проспект Независимости", "county" : "Первомайский район", "postcode" : "721859", "country" : "Belarus", "country_code" : "by", "atm" : "Приорбанк"

}, "lon" : "27.6344044", "place_id" : "1412286", "lat" : "53.9308222", "display_name" : "Приорбанк, 117, проспект Независимости, Восток, Minsk, Первомайский район, 721859, Belarus", "osm_type" : "node"

} As you can see there is county field in response, but it is wrong. I tried to find this name on the map and and found this is administrative area with a4 level. According to following document http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Proposed/Postal_Addresses#Address_Elements county level is a2. Why API returns county field for a4 level areas? Could you fix that pleas? Thank you in advance.

That's a data problem. The 'rayons' of Minsk have been changed from admin level 9 to 6 in this changeset: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/24752339
