ushahidi + OSM + geocoder

Iván Sánchez Ortega
Hi all,

Fredy Rivera, a fellow OSM from Colombia, needs a little help setting up an
ushahidi instance at

So far, the basic set-up is done and there are reports already. The problem is
with the geocoder in the "report incident" page: If GMaps is used as the base
layer, the geocoder works. If OSM is used as the base layer, the geocoder
doesn't work.

The question is: how to make the geocoder work while maintaining OSM as the
base layer? AFAIK, Ushahidi automagically manages layer configuration, so I
guess some hocus-pocus is involved.

Fredy recalls that the Haiti ushahidi instance worked allright with the OSM
base layer and the GMaps geocoder. If someone can point him to somebody
involved in that set-up, that'd be very helpful.

Thanks all,
Iván Sánchez Ortega <[hidden email]>
