Reverse geocoding for ASIA countries not working


#1

Broken example for Nha Trang, Vietnam:
https://graphhopper.com/api/1/geocode/?q=Surat%20Thani%20Province%2CThailand&point=9.5013944%2C99.9956193&reverse=true&format=json&provider=nominatim

Broken example for Surat Thani Province, Thailand:
https://graphhopper.com/api/1/geocode/?q=Nha%20Trang%2CKhanh%20Hoa%20province%2048058%2CVietnam&point=12.2431693%2C109.1898675&reverse=true&format=json&provider=nominatim

Working example for Amsterdam, Netherlands:
https://graphhopper.com/api/1/geocode/?q=Amsterdam%2CNorth%20Holland%2CThe%20Netherlands&point=52.3727598%2C4.8936041&reverse=true&format=json&provider=nominatim

I think this is very serious problem, in any case it hinders us when working with the service.
P.S. Reproduces only with nominatim provider.

Thanks for reporting.

Can you write what you would have expected for the broken examples?

btw: what is your intend with q[0] etc? This will be ignored from the API.

Sorry this is our internal service error, update url’s in original message.

Uh. This is indeed a bug in our converter: https://github.com/graphhopper/geocoder-converter/issues/49

Is fixed and deployed now. Please let me know if this works for you.

btw: the q parameter is ignored for reverse geocoding and nominatim

Thanks for the prompt fix, everything works as expected.

Ok, we will deprecate this param in requests.
