This API is the open version of MapQuest's Search API. Nominatim is completely open-source and is used to search all named features in OpenStreetMap and a subset of other unnamed features such as pubs and hotels. Results returned in Nominatim include the feature type, address, latitude/longitude, and other OSM data fields.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
