    Question Get list of lakes, ponds etc?

    Hi,

    I've been playing with the API and I cannot find the way how to get list of lakes, ponds, dams around given position.
    When I explicitely pass name of the lake then it is returned in the response with category "landmark-attraction" (which I cannot use as cat parameter value according to: http://developer.here.net/docs/place...ategories.html) (for example: " Grosser Wannsee" or "Zalew Zemborzycki")
    But how to request lakes around location w/o knowing their names I have no clue.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Przemek

    Basically the list you gave is for the general categories, so have you tried checking the local categories for the location you are interested ?

    Yes, I have tried with the same category lakes belong to (landmark-attraction) but result list never contains any lake (example: http://s.pbapi.places.public.devbln....3d38KGsg%3D%3D).
    Does maps.nokia.com / here.net uses Places API to obtain lakes names? - those are marked in blue font: http://here.net/56.6209634,14.8537082,12,0,0,normal.day

    You could try using body-of-water e.g. http://s.pbapi.places.public.devbln....3d38KGsg%3D%3D Again this isn't in the fixed list of categories, so it isn't guaranteed to exist forever.

    Thanks for suggestion but it for 99% locations it doesn't work (I couldn't find other localition which work with this category).
    I've also tried with full spectrum of categories: "body-of-water,landmark-attraction,natural-geographical,sights-museums" but still no lakes :/
