Current issues



Address geocoding with multilingual support; the service uses OSM data model in order to allow users to search for an address inside the pilot area of interest. The multilingual address geocoding manage three possible results:

  • no addresses matching input search criteria
  • list of addresses matching input search criteria
  • only one address matching the input address In the first option, the user will be prompted with an error message; in the second option, the user will see a list off addresses in which can be made a choice of the requested address.

If pilot area in OSM does not have building numbers along the street, the service will give just the street as output, and will retrive the coords street center point.

The service have support for multilingual searc, e.g. "Finnish: Köydenpunojankatu – English Koydenpunojankatu".

The service will retrive coords in the WGS84 coord system.
