In response of xml conditions request for France/Paris, the field observation_location.full is incomplete. Indeed, the value is "Paris," whereas it should be "Paris,France".

However, the field display_location.full is referring to "Paris,France".

Do you confirm it is a bug ? In addition, what is the difference between display_location and observation_location ?

Thank you by advance for your reply.

Display location is the place you search for, but observation location is where the weather is observed. For instance, you might search for a city that is on a state line, so you get the display name of that city, but the weather was observed just over the border in the other start, and that would be the observation location.

That display location you mentioned is a bug we can look into fixing.

Yes, I am facing the same problem !
Observation location is essential b'coz we need to specify to which location the weather report belongs to .

Thank You.
