There is no need to specify the city in the query.

Step 1. Identify the city_id to search in the city. Get this value from the id field (its part before the underscore ("_") symbol).

Option 1. Search for a city by a point:

https://catalog.api.2gis.com/3.0/items/geocode?lon=37.62143&lat=55.752966&type=adm_div.city&key=YOUR_KEY

Option 2. Search for a city by name:

https://catalog.api.2gis.com/3.0/items/geocode?q=Moscow&key=YOUR_KEY

Step 2. Pass the value from the id field (its part before the underscore) as the city_id field in your request. No need to specify the city name in the query.

To get the coordinates of the entrance:

  • determine the entrance id: take the value from the items.context.entrance_id field
    ...
    items: [
        {
            "context": {
                "entrance_id": "70030076156592791"
            },
        ...
        }
    ...
    ]
  • determine the coordinates of the entrance: find the block with data about the required entrance by its entrance_id in the items.links. database_entrances block
    ...
    "links": {
        "database_entrances": [
            {
                "entity_name": "2nd entrance",
                "entity_number": "2",
                "geometry": {
                    ...
                    "points": [
                        "POINT(37.602988 55.743127)"
                    ],
                    ...
                },
                "id": "70030076156592791",
                ...
            },
            ...
        ]
    }

To access the items.links.database_entrances field, you need additional permission for your key.
