As many of you know, MapQuest hosts a version of the Nominatim Search Service as a part of our Open Data API and SDK product line, so we wanted to share an important update about this service that will have an impact on users of this service.

The Nominatim Search Service will be unavailable on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 due to system maintenance. While it is never our intention to cause service disruptions, the outage is necessary. We apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause to our users of Nominatim. Please email us at with any further questions.
