The Region of Brussels

Hi everyone,

I may have misread but I am surprized I don't find any tracks of this question : every address in Brussels is placed in the Flemish Brabant. Why is Brussels not a region in OSM?
How can we correct it ?
Thanks a lot in advance !

Re: The Region of Brussels

Where (website, app) are you searching for addresses? Can you give some examples, links?

If I look up "Koningsstraat, Brussels" on osm.org, the first result is

Secundaire weg Koningsstraat, Europese wijk, Brussel, Sint-Joost-ten-Node, Brussel-Hoofdstad, Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest, 1210, België

All following addresses have similar information.

I get similar results for "rue de la loi, Brussel".

It seems that the data is correct, but the app that you use does not interprete it correctly.

Re: The Region of Brussels

Thank you very much for your answer !
Indeed when I use maps.me I get this : rue de la loi, Bruxelles, Brabant flamand, Belgique.
I thought they were using osm data.

I'll contact them then.

Thanks a lot !

Re: The Region of Brussels

You're correct, they use osm data together with some other resources.
It is possible that their geocoder uses a different set of data, or that the implementation is wrong.
