Results with undefined latlng and bounds returned by L.esri.Geocoding.geosearch when using searchBounds

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

When using L.esri.Geocoding.geosearch with searchBounds defined I’m getting a number of results outside of bounding box, returned without latlng/bounds, that when clicked do nothing.

Expected behavior

  • I would expect these results not to appear as they are outside the bounding box.

Actual behavior

  • There are no errors in the console.

To Reproduce

  1. Go to

  2. Search for “Park Bench Cafe” for example

  3. Click on image

  4. Nothing happens.

  5. Set searchBounds to false and “Park Bench Cafe” works as expected

Actually, upon looking into this a bit more, there is something going on with the source code here in esri-leaflet-geocoder with how the search extent is managed in the /suggest call versus the /findAddressCandidates call.

Here, only for the /suggest, there is a 0.5 padding being applied to the search extent:

We can see that in the separate network requests the /suggest call has a larger searchExtent than originally defined in your code example, which incorrectly includes “park bench cafe”. We’ll continue to investigate.
