I need the possibility to find the underlying ground information of a given location (set by latLng) - not an area!

I already tried the nominatim reverse search, but it lacks the landuse information. Here's an example query: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?format=json&lat=52.5487429714954&lon=-1.81602098644987&zoom=18&addressdetails=1

How do I enforce the output of the landuse here, which would likely be "residential"?

  • Sorry for that. At least someone answered to my question there. The solution for the problem is a coord-query, or an is_in as quoted here: help.openstreetmap.org/questions/32083/… – kernel Apr 4 '14 at 15:28
  • FYI: There is a catch with the is_in approach. This will only match areas with a name. Areas / ways without a name will only be found if you search them by the around search. – kernel Apr 14 '14 at 13:13
