Nice, didnt see that page although I did scour through the different repositories.
I guess I needed more clarification on the 'venues' portion.
A good example would be if I wanted to make a request targetting particularly OSM (but others as well if they have it) data on point of interest.
Something like 'all entertainment points of interest in a 50 mile radius of this point'
I can do that with the overpassAPI, I can understand the structure of the data and OSM has a whole wiki on POI.
From what ive seen you cannot do that with pelias.
However the reason I wanted to make sure is because the system in place could easily support this functionality given a bit of legwork, and this seems like a very well organized project!
