Geocoding with region bias

Is there a way to have "region bias" when geocoding, e.g. restrict best matches to a specific country of interest? I don't think there's an existing checkbox solution yet, but has anyone made a workaround attempt of having this bias?

Thanks guys.

Hi there,

the MapQuest REST API supports to specify a "bounding box" in order to limit/prioritize results to a given area. Same goes for Mapzen, plus additional options including limiting search to a country:

Their REST APIs are quite well documented, so you should be able to roll your own geocoding logic using the Palladian HttpRetriever and some JSON parsing nodes.

We'll probably add the mentoned functionality to the node's UI in the future as well, but as our temporal resources are quite limited currently, I can make no promise on that.


Thank you. I will try your recommendation.
