Whose way(street) belongs a gps coordinate

Hi all,

How can I find in OSM whose way belongs a gps coordinate? And the relations in which is this coordinate involved?
I need an OSM script query.

Thanks a lot!

So you need “reverse geocoding”?

You can go to http://help.openstreetmap.org and do a search for “reverse geocoder” or gecoding … there have been some threads already.

I mean, if I have the latitude and the longitude of one node, how can I retrieve the correspondind way (street) from these given coordinates.
I need an OSM script for Overpass API Interpreter or some Java Code.

Do you want to have informations for a bunch of nodes where you are sure that they are element of a way? Or do you also include nodes that can be single POIs or similar?

Or do you need a query where a node is a child of an an existing parent (in this case a way) and you want to know what way is this parent?

If so, I only found https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/13975/nodes-hierarchy

I solved the issue using Nominatim for the reverse geocoding:
