Bug Description

Hello,
this would be a really helpful POI for travel planning :
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dapartment

(if you're on the road and seeking for an apartment
in the region of your next destination.)

Hi Thilo,

That is not a valid nominatim string for searching:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Special_Phrases/EN
The apartments in nominatim are for buildings, not for tourist apartments.

Thanks anyway for your feedback!

Changed in unav:
status: New → Invalid

Hi Costales,

I'm sorry, forgot to check that,
asked to add it to Nominatim :
https://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/5448#ticket

Cheers,
Thilo

This is the answer to both of my requests :

  * *Resolution* set to /invalid/
  * *Status* changed from /new/ to /closed/

Nominatim isn't the best tool for POI search. Use the Overpass API, if
you are looking for objects with a specific key/value pair.

That said, the page you mention is a wiki, so you should edit it instead
of opening an issue here. Be aware, though, that reimports of the
special phrase page into the database at nominatim.osm.org happen very
rarely.

Thilo, please, understand that any status about bugs are because of something.

#1656648 Already in the Store
#1656647 Invalid now. I don't see a fix for this. I already worked and commit a change for this, but it is finding a 'regular' massage POI and the results are not right for include in uNav. Sorry.
#1668607 As I said, it's not searching for tourist apartments, then I'll not include it.

I'll not use Overpass because it is not updated like OSM and the results are different.

I'm so sorry.
Best regards.
