Search facility not working

I have used OpenSeaMap on my PC laptop, Android tablet and iMAC desktop most successfully for a couple of years.  This week the SEARCH FACILITY has stopped working for me.

Any Ideas?

Cheers!

Re: Search facility not working

Hi Pedro,

this seems to be an issue with our backend for searching.
I will investigate the problem. As we do all the work OpenSeaMap in our free time this might take some time.

As a pointer for others: http://map.openseamap.org/api/nominatim.php?q=Berlin
Should return a XML file with the search results but returns an empty file.

Regards,
Axel

Re: Search facility not working

Hi all,

I changed the way we use thr search backend to query Nominatim (http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search) directly.
This fixes the problems.

For further reference: The usage policy at https://operations.osmfoundation.org/po … nominatim/ requires the client to send a valid User-agent or referer. Our api script does not do this and seems to be blocked.

Regards,
Axel
