Geocoding: No results for villages with low inhabitants RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Basic/Dev/Test-Account and use the RestService to geocoding addresses to geopoints.

    For addresses in greater cities (Germany) it works fine but for villages with 30000 inhabitants there is no result.

    Are there any (licence-) restrictions?

  • Can you provide some examples of the places you are having issues geocoding? I suspect the issue is that you are being rate limiting. Rate limiting occurs on basic accounts when either a lot of calls are made in a short period of time or when the servers are under a lot of load. If you look at the header of the response there should be a flag that indicates the request was rate limited. This is documented here:

    Also, be sure to take a look at the best practices as there are a few things you can do that will drastically increase the success rate of geocoding requests:
