          Thank you for raising this issue. We investigated further into it and these data issues are caused when a forward geocode and a reverse geocode (gflags=R) are

            Thank you for raising this issue. We investigated further into it and these data issues are caused when a forward geocode and a reverse geocode (gflags=R) are requested at the same time. In general, it is not a great idea to do both in the same request. Is there a specific use case that you are trying to solve for?

              Thanks Rahul, the flags were tested previously to ensure we got the results required, I believe previously gflags=R was needed to get the coordinates. That no longer seems to be the case, and is performing reverse geocoding as mentioned in the docs.

              We'll remove the 'R' option and see how it goes!

                Hi Rahul,

                Is this possibly related to the issue I raised here:

                http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/ysearchboss/message/5400

                Specially, Boss PlaceSpotter having a dramatic decrease in quality recently?

                Thanks,
