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 OSM wiki at:

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

Installation
============

how to set up your own instance of Nominatim can be found in the wiki:
