Geocoding search engine too strict


#1

When I search a place is difficult to find what you’re looking for.
Usually you need to know the exact name of the street otherwise you can’t find it. If you use only a part of the name it suggests wrong results.
Also with POI if you don’t know the name how is recorded in openroute you can’t find it.

Yes, you’re absolutely right. Bothers me since ages… Thanks for the motivation, I think we should fix that soon.

We are in the middle of developing a new maps client, where it’s already fixed:
https://openrouteservice.org/map/#/

I’ll see if we can do the same for the current client, not that big a deal. Will keep you posted.

Good to know, in the new maps client I can confirm that it works well (I’m using it in Italy).
Thank you for sharing

The old client will be fixed early next week the latest.
