Nominatim

Nominatim (from the Latin, 'by name') is a tool to search OpenStreetMap data by name and address (geocoding) and to generate synthetic addresses of OSM points (reverse geocoding). An instance with up-to-date data can be found at http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org. Nominatim is also used as one of the sources for the Search box on the OpenStreetMap home page and powers the search on the MapQuest Open Initiative websites.

Documentation

More information about Nominatim, including usage and installation instructions, can be found in the docs/ subdirectory and in the OSM wiki at:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim

Installation

There are detailed installation instructions in the /docs directory. Here is a quick summary of the necessary steps.

  1. Compile Nominatim:

    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake ..
    make
    

    For more detailed installation instructions see docs/Installation.md. There are also step-by-step instructions for Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7.2.

  2. Get OSM data and import:

    ./build/utils/setup.php --osm-file <your planet file> --all
    

    Details can be found in docs/Import_and_update.md

  3. Point your webserver to the ./build/website directory.
