  • This method differs from the whosonfirst.places.getAncestorsByLatLon method in two ways: 1. It returns a list of WOF places rather than hierarchies and 2. If a placetype filter is specified and no matching records are found no attempt will be made to find ancestors higher up the hierarchy. For example looking for an intersecting county or region if no locality is found.

cursor This method sometimes uses cursor-based pagination so this argument is the pointer returned by the last API response, in the cursor property. cXVl…c7MDs= no
page The default is 1. If this API method returns a non-empty cursor property as part of its response that means you should switch to using cursor-based pagination for all subsequent queries. Alternately you can simply rely on the next_query property to determine which parameters to include with your next request. Unfortunately it’s complicated because databases are, after all these years, still complicated. Please consult the pagination documentation for details. 1 no

Notes
  • This method differs from whosonfirst.places.getByLatLon method in two ways: 1. It returns a list of hierarchies rather than a WOF place record and 2. It will travel up the hierarchy until an ancestor is found. For example even if there is no locality matching a given lat, lon the code will try again looking for a matching region, and so on.
  • The 'extras' parameter is only honoured when the 'spr' parameter is present.
  • The following output formats are disallowed for this API method: meta

  • The inability to locate (or to disambiguate) a parent ID for a lat, lon will not trigger an API error. The following parent IDs may be returned by this API method: '-1' which means that a parent ID could not be identified or that there are multiple choices; or '-3' which means that the parent is a neighbourhood and their are multiple possible choices and you should go out for a beer and argue over which is the correct parent.
  • The following output formats are disallowed for this API method: meta
  • This API method is **experimental*. Both its inputs and outputs may change without warning. We’ll try not to introduce any backwards incompatible changes but you should approach this API method defensively.

size The number of results per query. This is the equivalent of the WOF 'per_page' parameter. 10 no
layers Ensure records match this placetype. This is equivalent to the WOF 'placetype' parameter. borough no
boundary.country Ensure places belong to this ISO country code. This is equivalent to the WOF 'iso' parameter. ch no
q A valid query string. This is the equivalent of the Pelias 'text' parameter. JFK no
