I have a lat-lon point, translated to a street name via nominatim, and I want to find the intersecting streets to retrieve the user something like this:

123rd St, between 456th Bv and 789th Rd

I need to know how to query that.

This is, because in my country (Argentina) OSM doesn't have street numbers when reverse geocoding with nominatim.

    In how far is this question related to Overpass API? What have you tried so far?

  • You could try to use Overpass API with the around keyword querying for all highways around your location.
