    Searching for City

    Hi,
    I am trying to find lat,lang by given adress/city.

    Code:
    http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/places/v1/discover/search?q=Hamburg&tf=plain&credits
    Doesnt work.

    I just need SearchTerm to coordinates. (no map or sth)

    eg
    Hamburg -> lat, lng
    someAdress3 -> lat,lng

    that would not be handled via places API, but with Geo services, here's one wiki example to get you started on the topic: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...coding_service

    Hi,
    I discovered the problem.
    adding parameter at=0,0 seems to make it work.

    Maybe make this paramter optional ?

    Other Question:
    Is this API completly free ? even when i embbed it into my app and sell it ? Its a calc programm to see costs of a roadtrip.

    Hi,

    Currently we are in public beta. Afterwards there probably will be a limit in the number of requests for the free version.

    Please also review the application considerations: http://api.maps.nokia.com/en/restpla...l#api_contract

    The full terms and conditions can be found here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Develop/Maps/TC.html.

    Best,

    Re: Searching for City

    Hi,

    regarding your search question: search is trying to find the best match for certain areas but also giving results from other areas, if they match your request.

    Thus, if you search for Hamburg at (0,0) (which is in the middle of the ocean), there are no locally relevant results and you will get the German city of Hamburg only. But this is an implementation detail and might change at any time.
