Hi!

It seems that the longitude and latitude of objects with featureClass P are inverted?! Unless I am misinterpreting the abbreviations used in the JSON response. (lng = Longitude, lat = latitude) ?

Hi wessel

This is definitely a problem of ‘You Get Out What You Put In’. See this Paris sample >>>
http://api.geonames.org/findNearbyPlaceName?lat=48.85&lng=2.33&username=demo

JSON returns just the latitude/longitude of your input, without any change.

Either your preparation of the search algorithm or your interpretation of the result is flawed.

Hi wesselvdv,

All is ok for me, the longitude and latitude are not inverted...
Like said "saphir", I think the problem comes from your interpretation

Good luck !
