Problems with geolocation (longitud, latitude)

+1 vote

I've added geolocation information for a node, but when you open the map I see that this placing in the wrong place, I have seen that information assets shown node does not match the saved in the database.



Any idea what's happen ?

Hi Martí,

what part have you added?
Have you added the city or the Longitud, latitude?
OpenNMS will try to resolve the city and address assets to coordinates. If you provide the coordinates directly it's using them directly without any lookups via city and address.
So what data have you provided your self?

Hi Martí,

I had a second look at your data.... and if Amsterdam has not moved drastically then it's still on the northern hemisphere.
I guess you have added the coordinats manually. Flip longitud and latitude and you are going to pin point Amsterdam.
In your case the "mixed up" coordinats are some where in the Indian Ozean and are relocated by the geolockup.

So try using the address1 and city asset or provide the coordinates in the right order. If you have a many nodes providing the coordinates directly is recommended to avoid many many geo-lookups if you hit the map the first time.
