-To determine to which region a quadrant belongs, Badgers actually uses OSM service Nominatim. Such a mapping can be non unique, i.e. some quadrants overlap two or more regions. To get a one to one correspondence,​ **the region of the center of a quadrant in the sense of Nominatim** is considered the region a quadrant belongs to. Ah, well, and sometimes, if it is feasible or way too bad, we manually improve Nominatim mappings in our database. We have developed a means, that allows us, to periodically update our data from Nominatim, without such corrections getting overwritten. But this is really close to nasty details.+To determine to which region a quadrant belongs, Badgers actually uses [[:​nominatim|OSM service Nominatim]].
