Problem with placefinder api

Hi everyone,

I use this api in a web site to find stores in Europe. I have not trouble since a few days ago.

I have a store in Spain but the api say that it is in Mexico !

This is the request that i use to find the store :
http://where.yahooapis.com/geocode?locatio...2020&appid=[myidapi]&flags=P

But when i search in google map my store is find.

Maybe someone know the reason ?

Thanks

  • You need to add the country to get a precise result:

    http://where.yahooapis.com/geocode?locatio...paIN&appid=[APPID]

    That URI worked for me. You can probably look at the parameters settings and set the default locale.

    PlaceFinder expects to see addresses in postal address order. For Spain, this is Street, House, Postal Code, City, Country. Do not include any non-address information, such as business or personal names. The following query should return the desired results:
    http://where.yahooapis.com/geocode?locatio...&appid=[myidapi]&flags=P

    Please note that full name of the city is Sant Cugat del Vallès, and that we use the Catalan variant of the street name, carrer de Villa. Since PlaceFinder is a global geocoder, it is best to include country in the query.
