Hi to everyone,

I’m currently building an application that should be able to calculate the distance between two given addresses and therefore I need the latitude and longitude of them. So, from what I’ve found so far, it’s probably best to use a local instance of OpenStreetMaps Nominatim, which requires an PostgreSQL database. I’m using a MySQL database for all the rest of my application. Is it possible to use both alongside and what’s the best practice for it? Or are there any other, better solutions out there to use geocoding without any restrictions (google etc. have quite strict restrictions)?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: I just stumbled upon mapquest, which sounds pretty interesting since it seems to offer unlimited geocoding. Does anybody have had any experience with it?
