I know a question like this is asked very often. But the answers did never really satisfy me.
I want to extract addresses and maybe POIs from OSM. Nothing more. I am not interested any additional information.
So I inspected some OSM raw data and found the "addr:*" tags. They seem to be a solution for my problem. But in the data I inspected the "addr:state" tag is missing at nearly every point or polygon (at least in the Berlin map I downloaded from Geofabrik).
Is there any (relatively none complex) way or possibility to get these information too from the data without doing geocoding. Or is geocoding the only possibility to solve my problem.
I know that there are mighty tools like Nominatim, that would solve the problem. But I would be happier if there was a more simple way to do that.
