I’m trying to get reverse geocoding for my small firm with GPS tracking for vehicles. The idea is to have an server that updates the entries from my database- it takes them and updates them with the street name at a given period(like 1 minute, or two).
So I need the streets(from Romania), or an server to feed the streets(the costs at an service that does that is minimum 4-5000 Euro/year and I don’t need all the streets from my country).
Please give me an idea how to do that. I’ve tried until now with navteq but it keeps blocks my account(the limit is about 10000 transactions daily, and I barely use 2000-3000), but perhaps they see that there is an server(bot) that requests daily streets from my account.
So now I ask you guys, how can I do that with the support of OSM, in a “green” manner - without disturbing nobody by my server requests :).
Thank you very much for Your attention and answers and also excuse my bad grammar.
There several things you can try, one is osm Name finder where you can zoom in somewhere and then press “where am I” and get some kind of data. I don’t know if this is enough for you to creat something on your own. You can always ask the creator David Earl or osm name finder on the wiki
Also it would be very helpfull if you would donate the resulting GPX traces to openstreetmap
You should also consider having a local name finder, it might be harder to set up for you but if you just want local data for Romania it’s going to be 100x faster.
