Hi all. I'm using reverse geocoding, from lat/lon (gflags=R). The "neighborhood" field exists in the results but is always empty, even for areas that I know have neighborhood names available from other sources (like datasciencetoolkit.org).
Is there simply a lack of data in Yahoo's source for neighborhood names?
Bah! There's a parameter that controls the return of neighborhood names, but Yahoo put it in the wrong parameter block! From the documentation: FLAGS PARAMETER The input parameter named flags determines which data elements are returned in the response. But that's NOT where the neighborhood-name parameter goes; it goes in...
GFLAGS PARAMETER The input parameter named gflags affects how geocoding is performed for the request.
A Return neighborhood names for each result. Great service, Yahoo, but bad organization on that one.
